The right etiquette as a musical audience

What is the correct etiquette as a musical audience?
I find it irritating that audience cannot follow house rules.
Do you think that the house puts that "no photography, videography and eating" sign for fun?
The sign is so big at the door and yet people still break them.
Take out camera to snap, eat inside the theatre.

Come on... the staff did not confiscate the cameras because they trust that this is our personal belonging that we always carry out.
Yet, people misuse this trust to break the house rules.
How well will the images come out?
Too bright?

Come on, I'm here to enjoy the show, not and blinded by all the flashing lights before the show began.

Just a rather pissed off audience,

CATS, now and forever

I just came back from watching CATS.
I bought the tickets to watch CATS the musical last week.
It cost me $153 but... the musical was worth it.

The set is nice as it filled the whole esplanade theatre.
The story was good and it was rather touching at the last part of the musical.
Little did I know that the musical was a bit interactive as the audience found the cats to be amongst them during the poem recital in the beginning of Act 1.
Usually, the actors would only come out from backstage.
But my guess is that since it's CATS, the "cats" will be coming out from everywhere.
In the opening play, there were cats that came out from the theatre door.
It was interesting.
The interaction continued just after the intermission break where the cats were found loitering around at the audience seats.

The whole musical lasted about 3 hours including break.
