In the first place, whlen a diecent
s;how comes to town, the cheaper
is seats go out first, which is natural
e.because most people have less money
than more money. This, however,
le'ads to various complications other
than simply seating the paid admis-
_ sions.i
Ten Years Ago
For instance there are the people
w.ho have been to a play once before
in another theatre about ten years
before. A polite request for their
I ticket :stubs usually brings the toothy
Ic reoindecr that they know their way,
being old theatre goers. You knowt
they have no more idea of w.=here their
in-t seats are than they know wthat goesa
on behind the lowered stage curtain,
[h-but most customers still think they
age- are alwvays right,
