TT: We know every part by heart

So here it is at last, the distinguished thing: The Letter opens tomorrow night. The final dress rehearsal was as smooth as silk. The invited audience applauded wildly. Paul Moravec and I went home happy. Now it's out of our hands.

UPDATE: Two details from last night that I forgot to share:

• My wife doesn't impress easily, but I finally brought off the feat by speaking the following eight words: "Hilary, I'd like you to meet Tom Ford."

• Mrs. T gave me the perfect present after the rehearsal--a vintage Givenchy tie that was previously owned by Virgil Thomson, the great composer-critic. (She knew him at the very end of his life.) This time I was impressed.
