I'm only asking because I was recently at Waitress and sitting beside a mother with her 9 year old daughter. I was cringing for the mother throughout the show and the little girl was clearly confused for a lot of it. Then last week I was at The Spoils in London and this time there was a father with his 10 year old son sitting beside me. Again, I cringed. It makes me wonder if some people just buy show tickets based on star power and don't really try and determine what it's about and should I take my kid?
