Rick...haven't yet read the whole Art's post first of course, but it sounds to me like a group of Touretter's were with their social worker. If that were indeed true, a good social worker would have warned the performer in advance...but to refuse to play to a crowd like thatwould be pretty awful!
My very first public performance had a group of autistic children in the audience, down in front....I was entranced with their hand movements...and they were very forgiving!!! harpgirl
