Does anyone know if there is a way to make these look realistic without making that actress playing Sally actually drink raw eggs? Thanks!

Unless she has to actually crack the eggs onstage...I would think that you could simulate the eggs yolks with appropriately size gelatin mold, maybe with something like corn syrup for the egg white.

Use a non-see-through glass. Sally pretends to drink it, but the mixture stays in the glass.

If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

We had the eggs blown out - so our Sally actually cracked it, but nothing came out. And she had an opaque cup.

Our Sally Bowles actually drank the raw eggs. Meh, she said she got used to it after a while.

Unless they are allergic to eggs, I highly recommend using the real thing.

Buy organic or pasteurized eggs to reduce the risk of salmonilla.

I found it helps not to skimp on the Worchestshire (sp?) sauce. It makes it much easier to go down.

And have either the glass or mug be clear so that the audience can see it. It always gets a great reaction...
