The playbill for Broadway’s A View From The Bridge starring Russell Tovey should come with a disclaimer: “Warning: Life-threatening sexiness will be used in the production of this show. Thirsty theater-goers proceed at your own risk.”
Page Six, always the source of the world’s most iron-clad truths, reports that the sight of Russell Tovey baring his chest and stomach during the Arthur Miller classic was enough to cause an audience member to lose consciousness and necessitate calling an ambulance.
The male patron was watching form the on-stage portion of the audience (that’s a thing?), which we suppose is the “high definition” equivalent in the world of live drama.
Someone reportedly used the famous “Is there a doctor in the house?!” line, halting the show as three other audience members came on stage to assist the man.
On Sunday, Tovey received a tweet from the easily excitable audience member, apologizing for disrupting the performance.
