It doesn't matter whether it's a school production or play, or whether it's a major theatrical or musical event.
We all know how those nerves jitter before one is on that stage, under the lights ... and it's do or sink.
I'd say most of us have somehow partaken in a cultural illusion called "theater" or "performance".
But what happened behind the curtains?
I'd like to hear any story that people would like to share, whether it's garage bands, school theater or a professional act for a paying audience.
Did the make-up melt on your face, or was there a sudden power failure, or did you forget the lines?
Did you handle any mishap professionally, or was it a public embarrassment?
Please share your trauma, and your laughs.
