A：Yes, I'm looking forward to it. Our new boss, Mr. Brown, is being kind to take us all to celebrate the success on our last project. Are you going?
A：The first thing you should know is to be on time. Mr. Brown is picking up our
tickets and will meet us in front of the theater at 7 o'clock.
A：First of all, you do as the boss requests. Secondly, it is inconsiderate to arrive just as the curtain goes up.
A：That is exactly the point. If your seat happens to be in the middle of the row, you will have to climb over everyone else.
A：You might want to remain standing until those people turn up. Once the lights go down to signal that the show is beginning, take your seat.
A：Ushers generally will not seat people after the performance has begun until there is an appropriate break. Be courteous and stand to make it easier for them to get by.
A：The play is excellent, but I am having trouble seeing and hearing.
A：Well, the woman in front of me has on a big hat. I am having trouble seeing. She wasn't being thoughtful when she decided to wear that monstrosity.
A：The word relates to monster. I suppose she wanted to dress up, but she overdid it. And by the way, what were you thinking when you decided to dress casually?
A：Absolutely, the theater is a special event and people should dress up for the occasion. You should at least have worn a coat and tie.
A：This isn't the movies. It is a sign of respect to the actors and the other theater goers to look your best.
A：I wish you had asked me. Since you didn't, keep in mind that it is always better to dress up rather than dress down.
