Katharine Hepburn on stage at the Colonial Theater during the Boston run of “The Philadelphia Story,” March 1939
Kevin Spacey: Now, it got to the point where I actually started to talk to the audience. I actually started saying “Put that phone down!” And my fellow cast members decided that they weren’t quite comfortable with me breaking the fourth wall in that way… so anyway, here’s what happened. A couple of my friends in the cast decided that they wanted to try to help me be able to solve the problem [audience members distracting him while he is performing on stage. Spacey was performing “Richard III” in cities around the world] without actually talking to the audience or flipping them off.
David Letterman: Richard III! Giving someone the finger!
Kevin Spacey: Yeah, he flipped them off in Spain.
David Letterman: You can’t do that!
Kevin Spacey: Oh yeah you can. I saw Katharine Hepburn do it once… There was a guy in the theatre who put his feet up on the stage… he was in the first row… and she was in the middle of a scene… going “You don’t understand, the thing you have to do - GET YOUR FEET OFF THERE YOU PIG, THIS IS THE THEATRE!”
"Do you not then hear this horrible scream all around you that people usually call silence?"
