    By the time...

    "We will get to the theater after the beginning of the play "

    So if I have to rewrite that sentence into another with "By the time", which is correct?

    1. By the time we get to the theater, the play will have begun.
    2. By the time the play have begun, we'll get to the theater.

    I think the first one is more correct, but is the second wrong?
