According to a report in the New York Post, members of the audience shouted abuse at Netanyahu.

After the show, other complaints were hears about the arrival of the prime minister. “It isn’t enough that it is hard to get tickets to a Saturday night show. Netanyahu’s arrival turned the theater hall into an airport,” someone wrote online.

Liz Hoffman, who was also present during Netanyahu’s visit, wrote: “It is perhaps the biggest security presence in the theater since Obama visited here. Netanyahu is in ‘da’ house.” Another spectator told the New York Post, “All the focus was on him. There was lots of applause but also boos.”
