Actors might not care whether you applaud or not

Re: Standing O a little too standard (Comment, Sept. 30)

Celebrity chef Antony Bourdain observed that when diners send their compliments to the chef, his reaction and the typical reaction of the chefs he knows is (politely rendered) “And who the heck are you to judge my work?”

I suspect the candid reaction of actors to the presence or absence of a standing ovation from Victoria’s theatre patrons is much the same.
