During the bank scene in Mary Poppins, my feet got tangled with little Michael Banks and I fell backwards and dragged the kids down with me!

We were doing a Kurt Weill piece in Graz, Austria, and we didn't have any rehearsal with the lighting designer.

So in the middle of my solo I am on a table singing and a strobe light came on, flashing in front of my face. In that second, I forgot every word and everything from the song. I stood there silent, motionless. I came off the table and walked off stage without finishing the song. I think the Austrians thought it was really dramatic.
