which one is correct? #1 (permalink) Wed Nov 13, 2013 13:35 pm   which one is correct?
 

Theatergoers expect that the tickets for the play's first run of performances ...... long before the first night,when it is hoped the play .... a title.

first gap: will have sold out or will have been sold out
second gap: will be given or will have been given

thanks in advance

first gap - will sell out /will have sold out
second gap - will have been given (before the opening performance)
will be given (during the performance)
The last phrase sounds strange. The play is being marketed without a title?

Thanks, Beeesneees.
but I have a problem here.
I would like to know why first gap isn't in passive form?
because of "tickets" that mentioned in this sentence.
