Give first admittance to th’ambassadors.

When you get on a plane, the complicated boarding system almost seems like an old school hierarchical admittance system. First the rich, then those who might need assistance moving, then those with children in strollers before these rows of these people, then those rows of those people and so on and so on until the plane is full.
This line makes me imagine a theatre with a similarly complex, ordered admittance system. The ushers welcome the ambassadors first, then the politicians, then those that bought their tickets through a third party, those who were given them for free by the company, rows K-M will be the people with friends in the show, rows N-P potential backers, Q-S: the people who don’t really want to be there, T-Z, those who just stumbled in off the street.
And you know – I’d sort of love to play with some organizing principle like this when admitting an audience. It would need to be the right show, of course- for the context to have any meaning – but it would be fun to bring an audience into a theatre like they were getting on a plane, unless of course it was just annoying, like getting on a plane.
