According to historians, the custom of applauding dates back to the campfires of early man, where the telling of stories was acknowledged with drumming and the stomping of feet.

We still applaud, but drumming and stomping by audience members is generally discouraged.

As is cell phone use and loud talking.

Some of these are obvious rules, or should be, but with a new performing arts center in town, perhaps Las Vegans need to be reminded of just how to properly behave at the theatre.
