    Sure, the show must go on. But when someone in the audience disrupts that performance, Matthew Broderick is happy to make a few exceptions.

    On Friday, the actor briefly put the brakes on his Broadway musical Nice Work If You Can Get It to call out a theatergoer who seemed a little too eager to get a memento of the show.

    Sarah Jessica Parker's hubby broke character midperformance when he noticed a man in the audience shooting a video of the show, E! News has confirmed.

    Ew! Theatergoer vomits at Paul Rudd's Broadway show

    A rep for the show tells us that the 50-year-old did stop the show upon seeing the theatergoer playing impromptu film director.

    Broderick then politely asked if the audience member in question would refrain from recording the show, a musical comedy featuring beloved tunes by George and Ira Gershwin.

    Hey, at least nobody puked in the audience—just ask Paul Rudd about that.
