It’s 2015 and these days, people will try anything to make sure their smartphones stay charged — including jumping on stage at a Broadway play to plug the phone into an outlet for a couple minutes.
Okay, so that might not be the most conventional option, but an audience member at Broadway’s Hand to God attempted exactly that before a performance last week. Playbill.com confirmed the incident, noting that the audience member climbed onto the stage before the show started and attempted to plug a cell phone charger into a non-working outlet that was part of the set.
The crew then removed the cell phone and made an announcement to the theater about why audience members can’t charge their phones on stage. Cast members Sarah Stiles and Marc Kudisch referenced the incident on Twitter following the show:
On Monday, the production poked fun at the misunderstanding on Instagram with a post reading “Need a Charge?” above one of the Hand to God puppets.
