Theater Tests ‘Tweet Seats’

01:01 PM Friday 12/28/12 | |

Cell phone use during performances may be the bane of some venues’ existence but not Minneapolis’ Guthrie Theater.

The Guthrie began trying out a new “Tweet Seats” feature Dec. 27 that allows social media fans to tweet during select performances.

Tweet seats are being tested out for the venue’s current run of the Yale Repertory Theatre’s “The Servant of Two Masters” at $15 per ticket through the box office.

“If there were ever a Guthrie show to host Tweet Seats, it’s ‘The Servant of Two Masters,’” the Guthrie’s Trish Santini said. “This cast is an incredible ensemble of comedians, and night after night they’re riffing and improvising – it’s the kind of show that makes you ask, ‘Did they just say that?’ Usually they did – and tweeting should be a great way to talk about it.”

The seats are apparently located in a balcony level section so as not to be disruptive to other patrons.

The Guthrie isn’t the only theater that’s embracing cell phone use during shows. The under-construction Tateuchi Center in Bellevue, Wash., was designed with a liberal attitude toward electronics and will include a large antenna to improve indoor cell signals for patrons.
