Credit Elysha Dicks for this gem:
When you ask how long a play or musical runs, you should receive two distinct times from the usher:
The actual running time
The play or musical’s wind chill factor
“The play runs for 83 minutes, but it’s not very good. Quite dreadful in fact. With the wind chill, it will feel like a little more than four hours. Enjoy the show.”
As we all know, it’s the wind chill factor that we should be most concerned about at all times.
