Pete: "Years later Josh and Leila – now old – take tea together. Coincidentally Josh’s protective sanatorium cell is next to Ray’s and they have just – together – revived once again the children’s play, this time with the inmates of the sanatorium. They reflect on their career and lives together. The inference here is that perhaps, just maybe, Ray (the narrator) has confused the play he just saw in the Sanatorium with the one they all hoped to see happen one day in New York, in the sky, and up into the universe."
"Tea & Theatre" was released in the U.S. as a promotional CD credited as "Chris Lord-Alge Mix" although it is identical with the album mix. The promo was reviewed in Billboard Magazine Oct. 14, 2006.
During the 2006-2007 tour, the song was the final song of the concerts, performed by Pete and Roger alone on the stage.
