Furthermore, we request, out of respect for the dancers - unless you are placing a 911 call, a doctor dealing with a life threatening situation, a mother going into a labour (or someone who's better half is going into labour) or ordering one of our staff a coffee from Starbucks - that no calls be placed or taken in the theatre, or back stage. In other areas of the event, please use good judgement when using a mobile device - don't be "that person".
