One of the most frustrating conversations in theatrical history is recorded by Theatre Arts magazine: A subscriber dialed “Information” for the magazine’s number. “Sorry,” drawled the lady, “but there is nobody listed by the name of ‘Theodore Arts.'” The subscriber insisted: “It’s not a person; it’s a publication. I want Theatre Arts.” The operator’s voice rose a few decibels. She repeated, “I told you, we have no listing for Theodore Arts.” By now the subscriber was hollering, “Confound it, the word is Theatre: T-H-E-A-T-R-E.” The operator came back with crushing finality: “That — is not the way to spell Theodore.” Funny, Funny World.
