Exclusive DetailsHere’s how Keira Knightley‘s Broadway debut went — the curtain came up, and then the cops came down on a fan who lost it … screaming at her and throwing stuff onto the stage.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the man was arrested outside Studio 54, where Keira is starring in “Therese Raquin.” The man was seated in the mezzanine of the theater and just a few minutes into the play, he started shouting at Keira.
He demanded she reply to him, yelling … “Five seconds is too long to wait for a response!” When ushers ran to remove him, the man threw a bouquet of flowers down onto the stage.Knightley and her co-stars ignored his shouts, and even kicked the flowers off the stage.
We’re told the man is still in police custody on a 5150 hold. The theater says it will be adding extra security measures starting Friday night.
