Unfortunately, we see way too many jeans and t-shirts in our "theatres" (not movies, but symphony, ballet and opera). I will say it does somewhat detract from the experience when you pay a lot of money for your season ballet tickets and see jeans and t-shirts. I think it's somewhat disrespectful to the performers. I don't really care if someone is wearing khaki's and a polo on formal/semi-formal night, but it does bother me, especially if I had the experience of someone in shorts and t-shirt making a comment about "going all out" seated at my table (which is part of the reason why we tend to want to stick with our own family, unfortunately). I do think that it's shameful that DCL relaxed the dress code for Remy and Palo.
