'Peter Pan' Production Ends in Tears, Applause

(Peter Pan knocks part of set to the stage when making an ill-timed entrance, and moments later an actress is yanked violently from her bed and sent crashing into a window by hidden wires.)

Thanks to Comedy.com for drawing our attention to this today.
