Police were called to a ‘disruption’ at a West End performance of Grease as officers had to escort four concertgoers out of the theatre.
Officers were called to the Dominion Theater in central London at 8.40pm on Saturday.
Audience member Ryan Redmond told Sky News that two men and two women were ‘rude and abusive’ on the balcony – but refused to leave after being questioned by staff.
“It was the 7:30 show and it happened during intermission and delayed the second half by 20 minutes,” Mr Redmond said.
“I was told by the bar staff that one of them had been rude or abusive and was asked to leave and then other members of the group got involved.”
Footage recorded on cellphones showed people in the audience chanting “out, out, out” before officers removed the four to loud cheers.
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said in a statement: “Shortly before 8.40pm on Saturday August 26, police received reports of two men and two women causing a disturbance at a theater in Tottenham Court Road, W1.
“Officers responded and the group was escorted off the scene. No arrests. No injuries were reported.”
Grease the Musical returned to the West End in June and is set to end after a short run on October 28.
