"Wolverine" Slashes Out of a Performance Because of Cellphone Offender.

Actor Hugh Jackmon, aka Wolverine from X-Men, had to put a slashing halt during a preview performance of A Steady Rain because of a cellphone going off during his performance. Hugh got fed up with the person, after asking them politely to either get it, or "turn it off." The interruption "occurred during an intense moment in the play, when Jackman's character, a Chicago policeman, reveals haunting memories", according to the article.
From the article, about the play, "'A Steady Rain,' a taut drama about the relationship between two policemen, opens Tuesday for a limited engagement through Dec. 6. The play by Keith Huff already has proven to be a potent box-office winner, playing to capacity audiences since it began previews on Sept. 10." The play also stars Daniel Craig, the recent James Bond portrayer. This is Craig's theatrical debut as he costars with Hugh.
You know that little part before a movie, in which the actor gets out of character, while the viewer's cellphone rings, very loudly and obnoxiously? Well, this is a good reason to turn the phone off during the show. Well, I give it 2 claws up! Way to go Hugh!
