Joe Manganiello - Joe Manganiello Calls Out Theatre-goer For Taking Cell Phone Photos

Actor Joe Manganiello halted a Connecticut stage production of classic Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire on Wednesday (25Sep13) to admonish an audience member for taking photos throughout the performance.

The True Blood hunk is currently tackling the coveted role of Stanley Kowalski in the Mark Rucker production at the Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, but the show was rudely interrupted this week by a person who continually shot images on their cell phone.

Manganiello grew frustrated with the snap-happy crowd member and called out the bad behaviour online during an intermission, vowing to have the person kicked out.

Taking to his blog, he wrote, "Dear person taking pictures during our show tonight..the ushers are going to be looking for you and you will be thrown out. You are insanely distracting to all of the actors onstage and incredibly rude. If you read this, please leave and don't come back. I'm happy to take pics (sic) outside after the show... please be respectful."

However, the audience member did not get the message and continued using their camera phone during the third act, prompting the actor to pause the play and address the crowd directly.

According to the Yale Alumni Magazine, he remained in character and shouted, "Can you stop with the camera? You have no idea how distracting it is!"

A spokesperson for the theatre tells, "Joe Manganiello appropriately addressed the matter from the stage on behalf of the company when the camera's clicking noise continued during the play's third act, then proceeded with the remainder of the performance."
