I gotta see this!

Haven’t seen this Broadway’s new production of 1984 and this article could be clickbait which exaggerates the vomiting, fainting and fights caused by this show. Or is it that perhaps that a “well-heeled” Broadway audiences can’t handle the truth?
 
“We’re not trying to be willfully assaultive or exploitatively shock people, but there’s nothing here or in the disturbing novel that isn’t happening right now, somewhere around the world: people are being detained without trial, tortured and executed,” explained Macmillan. “We can sanitize that and make people feel comforted, or we can simply present it without commentary and allow it to speak for itself.”
 
Added Icke, “You can stay and watch or you can leave — that’s a perfectly fine reaction to watching someone be tortured. But if this show is the most upsetting part of anyone’s day, they’re not reading the news headlines. Things are much worse than a piece of theater getting under your skin a little bit.”
