This had me cackling in laughter this morning: Kevin Del Aguila hamming it up in the wings off-stage while the show, Some Like It Hot, goes on. How on Earth did the actors not completely break during all of that?

This is *high-quality* wing clowning and a total hoot. The laundry baskets got me.

(Games during long runs are hugely important coping mechanisms for actors. It's a fine line, though, and onstage games are almost always a bad idea. I still cringe remembering a cast full of of Star Trek nerds who once competed to see who amongst us could most seamlessly insert a Riker Maneuver into our realistic three act drama. All fun and games until one of us knocked over a chair at the height of the act 3 denouement.)

That is incredible… I’ve watched it several times now and it will never get old. That’s a high bar to clear.

I was immediately reminded of this anecdote told by Phoebe Waller-Bridge on the Graham Norton Show (nsfw).

Oh my god this is fantastic...I was crying by the end.
