Jarrod Spector took to social media after the performance to chastise Kanye West for his phone use, during the show, saying, "Hey kanyewest so cool that you're here at TheCherShow!". One person who hasn't chimed in on the confrontation is Cher herself - though the outspoken legend, who was also in attendance for opening night, has publicly commented on her devout admirer, Kardashian, in the past.
In 2015, Madonna earned the ire of Lin-Manuel Miranda and several Hamilton performers after she was spotted with her phone in the audience of an off-Broadway production of what would become a cultural juggernaut. "If you look up from your cell phone you'll see we're doing a show up here", Tony-nominated actor Jarrod Spector had tweeted during the performance. But it's a problem whether you're famous or not-rude theatergoers have had their phones literally snatched out of their hands by the great Patti LuPone.
The Cher Show tells the story of Cher's career through three distinct stages in her career. ("You look BEAUTIFUL Little Armenian Sister", Cher wrote in response to one of the reality star's Halloween costumes).
West later apologized in a reply on Twitter for his "lack of etiquette".
And a TMZ insider says the disrespectful move of being on his phone was only so he could take notes about how handsome the production was.
She reiterated her admiration for Cher on the red carpet for the musical's opening night.
