Thursday’s Piece

“Oscar Wilde arrived at his club one evening, after witnessing a first production of a play that was a complete failure.

‘Oscar, how did your play go tonight?’ said a friend.

‘Oh,’ was the lofty response, ‘the play was a great success, but the audience was a failure.’ ”

(Daniel Frohman, 1851 – 1940)
