Just When You Thought You Were Safe in the Stalls ...
When actors say, 'It's a good house tonight', what do they mean? Paul Allen investigates the mysterious chemistry of the actor-audience relationship, discovers there can be far more to audience participation than cries of 'Oh, no, it isn't', and meets a cabaret act who claim 'the audience isn't on a pedestal. We treat them like anyone on the street, sometimes worse - a lot worse....'
