- For Teachers
Are the tenses in the following two sentences both correct and are the sentences of the same meaning?
Tonight is the first time this year that we're seeing a musical in my favourite theatre.
Tonight will be the first time this year that we've seen a musical in my favourite theatre.
I think the use of the present tense can work as long as it is near future. In the morning, you could say "tonight is the..." meaning that night.
