Hooray for Don Shirley's "Why Don't Plays Start on Time? Because of You" (Aug. 10).

It is more than my pet peeve to arrive on time, having prepared for possible traffic delays and other "emergencies" only to have the curtain delayed as much as 15 minutes beyond scheduled performances. If an 8 p.m. curtain-rising means 8:03, 8:10 or even 8:15 then say so and change the ads and promotion to reflect the actual performance time.

On-time productions separate the professionals from the amateurs. How about granting a refund of the ticket price if the curtain does not go up as scheduled?
