I'm a fire-eater and had been doing a serious show, (formal attire, horror themed music and patter).One performance just as the curtain opens I'm told the music cd didn't work, some kind of compatability problem. I tell the Stage Manager it's ok, I'll do the show without, when all of a sudden this rock style music I've never heard comes over the speakers. After a moment's hestitation, I started to dance to it, not thinking about it, just doing it. I improvised some new moves to go with the new dialogue as well and when it was over the audience loved it, they had no idea there had been a problem. That night I realised, Serious wasn't where I should be, and my comedy fire show has been evolving ever since.
Fire is a demanding Mistress...

Great story and nice job on going with the flow.
Sounds like your CD not working may have been a blessing.
Best of luck to you.
Bob.

Great story, I remeber some advice as a youngster starting out doing music act..be prepared to perform every effect you use to music to a different track
because it will happen at some time in the future..sure enough,has happened a couple times..
