So what else can go wrong? I was once two floors above the stage when I heard my cue over the intercom. The audience waited.
They also waited when I was 15 minutes in to my one-man-show Un Gros Câlin (Cuddles) in French when all the lights fused. I carried on for an hour, in the dark, while the audience waited for the lights to come back on. They stayed, but I suppose they couldn’t have found their way out anyway.
