Kevin Spacey was onstage for the opening night of Clarence Darrow at the Old Vic Theater in London when a ringing phone interrupted the play – much to his displeasure.

Kevin Spacey Calls-Out Theatergoer

Oscar-winning actor Spacey put the play on hold to address the member of the audience who failed to put his or her phone on silent before the show. “If you don't answer that I will,” Spacey shouted down to the individual, reported the Daily Mail.

When the cell phone went off, Spacey was in the middle of a monologue in which he was directly addressing the audience. In the scene, his character – a legal pioneer in 19th century America – was on trial defending himself. As Darrow, Spacey was making an impassioned plea directly towards the audience when the ringtone melody began. Spacey continued to perform, but the noise wouldn’t let up, which led him to address the offending theatergoer. »
