The show must go on

A performance of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying was cancelled after a stagehand died of a heart attack backstage.

I can appreciate the sentiment, but if I'd died on stage*, I'd have preferred to go out the way Tommy Cooper did: With the show going on while my feet were sticking out under the curtain.

*Come to think of it, I did–more times than I care to think about!
