One night, the pyrotechnics that were designed to make the "Grand Finale" look truly explosive didn't go off. Fortunately there was some serious backlighting used to support the effect, but the lack of flames was a tad noticeable. This was especially so because our girl-in-the-box used the flames as cover to disappear backwards through the jigsaw wall behind her as part of the illusion - but this time she was exposed for all to see in the absence of the flames. Whoops.

The only good news about it was Pippin's next line, which was something along the lines of ...

"That's the Grand Finale? But that was just a trick!"

Clearly not a very good one! #-o

(In our defence, the pyros worked perfectly every other night.)
