As police escorted the culprits out of the building, other theatre-goers erupted into applause and chants of: "Out, out, out!"

An officer can be seen stooping down to speak to a man and a woman in the audience, while another officer then appears to gesture to another couple to leave.

It is understood that around eight officers from the Metropolitan Police in attendance.

According to The Mirror, seats on the balcony cost between £59.50 and £150 each.

A spokesperson for Met Police said: "Shortly before 8.40pm on Saturday, August 26, police received reports of two men and two women causing a disturbance at a theatre in Tottenham Court Road, W1.

“Officers attended and the group were escorted from the premises. No arrests. No injuries reported."

Two police cars and a police van were pictured outside the theatre with their blue lights flashing.

It is not known what caused the ruckus, however, someone commented on the clip claiming that it was due to someone being “rude, abusive, and refusing to leave”.

They said: "No one seems to know (what happened) but bar staff claimed they'd been rude or abusive and just wouldn't leave and kept on arguing, guessing too much drink."

In another incident in a second theatre in London during a showing of The Crucible, another fight broke out.

One person tweeted: “Bizarre at London theatre last night: First, a fight breaks out as couple in aisle seats refuse to stand to let people pass them.

“Later, different fight as people accuse a couple of talking through the play. Do people not know how to behave socially anymore?”

When asked about the outcome of the fight, the original poster revealed that eventually the couple moved but continued to hurl abuse at others, and later tried to fight them outside the theatre.
