A Broadway actress named Patty LuPone recently berated audience members who apparently didn’t have their masks covering their noses:
Patti LuPone tore into a pair of theatergoers on Tuesday after the duo refused to wear their masks properly during a post-show talkback.
The Broadway legend — who is currently starring in the Tony-nominated revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Company — was appearing alongside her costars in a filmed Q&A hosted by the American Theatre Wing when she snapped at the patrons, telling them to pull their masks up over their noses.
“That is the rule,” she can be heard telling them, in footage of the back and forth captured by multiple audience members and shared to Twitter. “If you don’t want to follow the rules, get the f— out!”
You won’t be able to help but notice that the people on stage weren’t wearing masks while this scolding took place (language warning):
Listen to this crazy Broadway performer flip out over someone not wearing a mask correctly in the audience. These mask people are truly insane. pic.twitter.com/VDz6TCsOpS

So they’re still doing this, huh?
Best part: Patti Lupone says all this unmasked. OF. COURSE. https://t.co/SdrMlV9A4L

As always, the “rules” are for you, not them.
The strict masking policies don’t appear to always work when it comes to “keeping the performers safe”:
Hi Dolls. I showed up for Saturday’s matinee, tested positive for Covid with 3 tests. Unfortunately, I’ll be out of the show for 10 days. I’m so sorry.

The masking “science” isn’t always solid, but they won’t give it up. However, Dr. Fauci might approve of the actress’s on-stage rant.
