My sis saw wicked last night and told me the BEST story: Idina was walking down stairs sometime at the end of the show, adn her dress got caught! She sarted giggling, and then so did bundy. Then the audience was hysterical, and when they finally calmed down, idina said" Say your line!" The audience went wild again! the cast was crying cause they were laughing soooo hard!!

It is amazing that we get such criticism from some of you about bloopers that happen. That is what is fabulous about live theater. We used to love Carol Burnett and when she would crack up or make Harvey laugh. Why is it that we cannot accept that someone somewhere sometime might make a mistake on stage and laugh.

I love bloopers...as for professionalism, to keep going when flubs are made is to me, the mark of a professional. Stuff happens it's how it's handled that cuts the difference.

I agree with Jon, but also agree that they have been getting out of hand with their "bloopers." They are starting to act like a kindergarten play: "Oooops! I forgot my lines...lets start over!" What ever happen to staying into character?

I love bloopers, and I don't mind the actors laughing. It's lines like, "Say your line!" and "Cut!" and "I got a day off and look what happened!" that bug me: deliberately acknowledging that you are just doing a show.

I agree bloopers and live theatre great yeah. But they arn't just "going on with the show" there saying stuff like "next line" a few bloopers sure, but I agree that they've checked out.

A friend of mine saw Wicked last week and said there was a blooper of sorts where they all started laughing. She loved it, but the person she was with "loathed" it because it was so unprofessional.

I'll probably state what will be said a ton of times in this thread:

I would have laughed at what happened first, but I totally hate when people react like Idina did in the situation. THAT is unprofessional. I wouldn't pay to see that.

It may not occur during a major moment...but lets say it occured in the final part of "Defying Gravity", where Idina cracks on a note and they both start laughing uncontrollably while the music is playing in the background. I don't think that ANYONE would be happy with that.

when i saw the show last month it went off without a hitch, the performances were fantastic and there were no bloopers to speak of. as a matter of fact, ive seen a lot of shows and ive never seen an on-stege mess up, how often do they occur?

Im just suprised they can get away with it that much. Even when I was doing little community theatre shows we knew never to break character or the director would kick our as* from there to China.

Perhaps the producers need to start making unannounced visits to the show... bloopers can be funny but not when it gets to a point where people WANT to see them...

I'm not paying $100 to see professionals SCREW UP...

On a slightly off-topic note, remember during one of those behind the scenes episodes of Friends? The cast members told the interviewer that sometimes they created bloopers to keep it fun and informal for the studio audience. Maybe that's what Idina and Kristen are going for. Even if they're still mentally able to continue the scene, they crack up instead, hoping that it adds to the charm of the show to watch 'em screw up. Granted, I wouldn't find it very amusing to see them drop character to the point of saying "Let's start the scene again." It's better to keep going through the giggles (aka Jimmy Fallon and Horatio Sanz on Saturday Night Live - now THAT is an excess of unnecessary laughter!).

Im the same way...I agree that it could be fun for an audience to see a blooper, but i do think i would be little disapointed to see Idina or anyone drop character without putting up much of a fight. I really get into shows when i watched them...im watching Galinda and Elphaba or Roger and Mimi or Simba and Mufasa or Gypsy and Mama Rose...you get my point....i dont want to see the characters become the actors...even though it was a funny blooper, where did Millie go? Broadwaylilhead's right....I don't want to pay $100 bucks to see pros screw up.

I kind of enjoy a little like mess up every so often because that's what makes live theater so great. But it seems to be happening way to much at Wicked. I mean if it where little things like when I saw 42nd st. a girl feel up the stairs in the last number. That's one thing but having them stop what seems to be at least once a month or so and have to re take lines or whole scenes that's pretty crazy. It doesn't seem very professional to me either. Live theater actors should at least have a little improvising skills to keep a scene moving as best they can.
