    I have taught theatre for 40 years, and when students have asked me about the two spellings, I always tell them that one is a British spelling and the other the American spelling. But, I tell them, my choice is always “re” for live performances and their spaces and “er” for film and its spaces. Jerry W. Grayson, Indianapolis.
