Actor: “Man, I’m dead on my feet.”
Director: “That joke slays me.”
Wow, that was a grim little number.
Too bad he didn’t get to read the reviews…
Seems like a few years ago there was someone (comedian perhaps?) that often used fake death scenes in his act. One evening he had a heart attack on stage and died before anyone realized it wasn’t an act.
So sad and beautiful.
There is a list on the Internet of actors who died on stage.
Moral of the story…..where art does not deign to imitate life, life will eventually seek to imitate art.
