The Play

A man arrives at the theatre to see the latest production only to learn that it is completely sold out. He finds an usher and pleads with him,
“You must help me, I am a HUGE theatre fan. I’ve been to every opening night performance at this theatre for twenty years. I can’t bear to miss this play, is there any possible way you can find me a seat?”
The usher says he’ll see what he can do.
A few minutes later the usher returns and tells the man he has found him a vacant seat. He leads him inside the theatre to be seated.
A few moments later the man is waving for the usher again.
He whispers to the usher, “This play is a mystery, and I LOVE mysteries. But I have to watch a mystery close up. Get me a better seat, and I’ll give you a handsome tip.”
The usher manages once again to find the man a seat, this time in the second row. As he seats him, the man hands the usher a quarter.
The usher looks at the quarter, leans over and whispers,
“The wife did it.”
