Addison De Witt lives in the Theater as a Trappist monk lives in his faith. He has no other world, no other life. His native habitat is the Theater; in it he toils not, neither does he spin. He is a critic and commentator. He is essential to the Theater. Once in a great while, he experiences that moment of Revelation for which all true believers wait and pray: Theater that is full of meaning, fire and music!
