Post Disasters, Mistakes, Pranks, etc.?
Dear Pippin Fans,

If you have any disaster/ mistake/ prank stories which relate to your production of Pippin, feel free to share those stories here.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

I want someone who's the deviant version of Fred MacMurray, David Tomlinson & William Schallert....but who has the looks of guys like Dan Haggerty, Kris Kristofferson & Tom Selleck.

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.)
