Wicked. I came in swinging from one leg on a rope, split my pants, and flashed Kristin Chenoweth.

During the final dress rehearsal for The Mousetrap on the University of Minnesota Centennial Showboat, I was running for a quick change when the heel of my right shoe got caught in the cuff of my left pant leg at the top of a set of stairs. When I catapulted face-first down the stairs, I put my arms straight out to catch myself and broke 'em both. I didn't miss a single show that summer and performed the role of the mysterious Miss Casewell with a cast on each arm. Reedonkulous.

Having food poisoning while singing Don Giovanni. I could not leave the stage for 25 minutes!!! A true night in Hell!!
