    Ebert review: 3 stars

    'Vomitorium' is actually a real word. The tunnel entryways from a lobby into a theatre's or stadium's stage area are called vomitoria.

    Theatrical lore has it that nervous actors would run out, vomit, come back--and on with the show. But Dictionary.com explains: "in a theater or stadium, esp. ancient, a passageway leading to and from the seating; from Latin vomitorius, alluding to the path's discharging of the spectators"

    Ebert: an in-the-know kind of theatre guy.
