Man vomits on audience during Paul Rudd's Broadway show

WENN

Paul Rudd's turn in Broadway play "Grace" is making theater fans sick: One man vomited from a balcony during Wednesday night's show.

Rudd is currently starring in the first official run of Craig Wright's production alongside fellow cast members Michael Shannon and Ed Asner at the Cort Theater in New York, and fans flocked to see the show on Wednesday.

However, audience members in the orchestra section got a shock when they were showered in vomit after a man fell ill in the mezzanine.

A source tells New York Magazine, "The stench of the vomit was a little overwhelming, and many people were noticeably uncomfortable, and of course everyone who was vomited on left."

The actors battled through the ruckus, but Rudd couldn't help but mention the incident during a speech he gave to boost donations for the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids charity at the end of the performance.

The insider adds, "At the end of the show, they all made jokes about it, Paul Rudd saying how as an actor, being able to move people to tears or to laughter is amazing -- but moving them to puking is a whole different league. Then after the show, at the stage door, the actors said how they almost stopped the show because they didn't know the severity of the situation."

Hmm, I googled Rudd's filmography and I noticed this on Wiki regarding his supporting role in the 1997 movie The Locusts (which currently holds 20% "rotten" rating on film review aggregator ):

A test screening experienced several audience members leaving the theater with their hands over their mouths after seeing a scene with a full graphic bull castration. 's marketing chief responded in the Los Angeles Times that the audience members must have reacted only "to what they expect to see" with MGM president of worldwide distribution Larry Gleeson adding "You can do anything to a human being [in a movie], but just don't hurt an animal.

So I guess this kind of thing may not be a fluke ;)
