Madonna allegedly left Natasha Richardson with ‘steam coming out of her ears’ after braiding her hair while watching a Broadway musical.
Actor John Benjamin Hickey has claimed that the pop icon was in the audience for a production of Cabaret in 1998, which he starred in alongside Richardson and Alan Cumming.
“One night in the audience Madonna was there, and we were all so excited that she was there,” Hickey told US talk show Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen. “There were lights on the audience, and Madonna proceeded to sit and braid her hair through the entire performance.”
He continued: “I didn’t really give a s***, I didn’t care one way or the other. [But] our leading lady Natasha Richardson came backstage with steam coming out of her ears. ‘How dare she?’”
“She was absolutely right,” Hickey added. “If you’re gonna come to the theatre, don’t sit and braid your hair, have some manners, especially if you know all eyes are on you.”
Earlier this year, while appearing on the Talk Art podcast, Cumming claimed that he reminded Madonna of the incident after they became friends.
“She talked about coming to see me in Cabaret and I said, ‘I remember you were braiding your hair’,” Cumming said. “She was like, ‘Was I? That’s incredibly rude.’ And I went, ‘Yes, it was rude.’”

Madonna Takes 5 of Her Kids to Dad Silvio's Vineyard to Celebrate His 90th Birthday: 'It Was So Special'
Madonna made her father Silvio Ciccone's 90th birthday one to remember!
The "Vogue" singer, 62, took five out of her six children - Lourdes Leon, 24, David Banda, 15, Mercy James, 15, and twin daughters Stella Ciccone and Estere Ciccone, 8 - to visit her dad at Ciccone Vineyard & Winery in Michigan for a special occasion.
On Thursday, Madonna posted a video montage to show all the wonderful photos from the trip. The clip included sweet bonding moments between the kids and their grandfather, Stella and Estere running around the vineyard, Madonna snuggling with Lourdes, group photos of the family, and a three-tier cake surrounded by bottles of wine.
"My father is a survivor growing up as an Italian Immigrant in the US and living thru many traumas but always working hard for everything he had," the pop icon captioned the Instagram post. "He taught me the importance of hard work and earning one's way in life.............Again I thank you." She added, "It was so special to spend your 90th birthday with you and my children in your vineyard. 🍇🎂🍷🎉♥️ #happybirthday #ohfather #thestrangers @cicconevineyard."
Madonna has been teasing fans with updates about a film based on her Madame X Tour in recent months.
And on Saturday, the legendary pop superstar took to Instagram to announce that the documentary will be released in the fall, writing: 'Madame X coming in October!!!' alongside a photo of herself on stage during the tour's 75-date run.
The trek - consisting of dates in the United States, England, France, and Portugal - was not without drama behind-the-scenes, which included several show cancellations due to Madonna's recurring knee injury and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The film is slated to drop on Netflix and features extensive footage from the tour and behind-the-scenes clips of the singer-songwriter in all her glory as her Madame X alter ego.
Madonna screened the documentary concert film to 12 people in a 500 seat theatre this past April and gushed that she 'cant wait to show it to the world!!!'
Nothing makes sense after this year.................Thank God I love what I do........💙........in the sound edit for Madame ❌ pic.twitter.com/9JooQ5ruUJ— Madonna (@Madonna) May 22, 2021
