Babes in Arms

Re the June 24 letter from Stephen Tessler, who had to buy an "unusable" seat for "Peter Pan" for his 6-month-old infant: Excuse me if I seem unfeeling, but what kind of person would take a child that age to a legitimate theater in the first place?

Mr. Tessler himself states the baby was "far too young to be a member of the audience." Even if the child were sleeping when the family entered the theater, can anyone honestly believe that it will continue to sleep through a two-hour-plus performance?
