Sweeter Dreams?

During the premiere of one of his plays at the Théâtre Français, Dumas mentioned to a friend that on the previous night at the same theater he had witnessed Forunert’s “Gladiator.”

“How was it?”

“Tedious,” answered Dumas. “People simply fell asleep.”

At this moment the friend noticed a member of the audience sunk in deep slumber and remarked with a smirk, “Well, apparently your own play doesn’t seem especially gripping either”

“My dear friend, you are mistaken,” replied Dumas. “He’s left over from last night.”
