Just in case anyone is tempted to take this out of context, I want to be clear
that the "inebriated gallery boor" is the true catalyst of great drama, and
that this is the only audience I would ever care to write for. I myself am,
in my proudest moments, a drunken gallery boor, and as far as I'm concerned,
people who take in theater from the serenity of the balconies are good enough
for the Guillotine ;-) Worse yet are those who come down to the pits with
too much sobriety to their credit. I think this is an axiom of literary
criticism, but for some silly reason, I can't find a decent citation...
