I was not part of this show, but this is so funny that I have to post it. The night before a production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat closed, the entire company went out partying. On the was back, the actor which plays Jesus slipped on ice and twisted his ankle. He's fine now, but his understudy took his place for closing night. in the final scene, when Jesus dies on the cross and floats un on the fly rail to heaven, everything went as it should have until the fly crew began to raise him. The US was 75 pounds lighter than the main actor, so he bagan to shoot up. One fly person grabed the rope with his bare hands and got third degree rope burns, while another smashed the brake back on. Because he braked it so quickly, the cross fell off of the bar and fell five feet to the floor with the actor still on it. Although it landed vertically, it then fell forward and smashed the actor's face into the floor. Cue blackout and curtain: the show is now closed!
