Went to see a performance to forget about this crazy year for just one night. The performers acted their hearts out. Unfortunately the staff ruined the entire night. The county no longer enforces masks but we wore them anyway. As soon as we enter we were chased down to have our temperature taken. This is a vital sign that should not be taken in a public venue by a non medical person ( what if I had a high temperature from a non infectious underlying cause? Blatant HIPPA violation!). Yes, I should have refused but in the interest of having a good evening I allowed it (little did I know). Drinks and snacks were available so after we took our six foot distanced seats the show began and we lowered our masks to drink water. That’s when the mask gestapo came while the performance was going on and told us to put our masks back on embarrassing us in front of the entire theater. We reluctantly complied (another mistake on my part).During the intermission and after the show we were given angry and creepy looks by this “gentleman” as he smoked his cigarettes ( obviously very concerned about his respiratory Heath!). I wanted to ask what his problem was but again in the interest of “trying” to have a good evening we moved on. This just ruined the whole night. The performers giver their all on stage but unfortunately seem to have a very power hungry and creepy staff running the place. I think everyone should support community theater but please look to other theaters in the Bay Area that not only appreciate their audience but are happy to have them there!
