I was reminded by MAK's rant about theater etiquette yesterday about a conversation overheard at my show last spring. I have no particularly snarky comment about it, I think it speaks for itself.

Man and Woman are reading the ads in the back of their Playbills, talking about shows to see next.

Woman: What about Nine?
Man: We saw the original and didn't like it.
Woman: We did?
Man: Yeah. With Raul Julia.
Woman: Oh, I like him. [pause] What ever happened to him?
Man: He died. Of AIDS, I think.
Woman: Oh. [pause] What ever happened to AIDS?
