* An example that doesn't have an event in real life mirroring it, (and played for comedy), the main antagonist of SisterAct, Shanke is singing about getting back his girlfriend after she saw him commit a murder. He uses the line, "When I find my baby, I ain't letting her go." The song is LyricalDissonance and sung to sound like a love song, but the verses following are actually about him drilling, shooting, stabbing, drowning, disemboweling, and [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill giving "her skull a big dent with a blunt instrument"]]. He repeats the line after each verse, (including the first, where he already establishes that he wants to kill her) but by then we get the point.

* Creator/CirqueDuSoleil's ''Theatre/{{KA}}'' has a lot of {{Spectacle}} involving characters seeming to fall, sometimes to their doom, from the two moving stages that create its various settings. Sadly, it was during the climactic WireFu sequence that a performer [[FatalMethodActing actually fell to her death]] during the late show on June 29, 2013. After going on hiatus for investigation, the show reopened July 16 with the scene in question cut, then later readded with all the performers projected onto the wall, with the full sequence being reinstated completely as of late 2014.

* The song "Try to Remember" from the musical comedy ''TheFantasticks'' took on a much more somber meaning after the September 11th terrorist attacks. Lyrics like "Try to remember the kind of September when life was slow and oh so mellow... Try to remember when life was so tender that no one wept except the willow" reflected the loss of innocence many people felt right after the tragedy. ** ''Wall Street Journal'' critic Amy Gamermann [[http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2002-09-27/news/0209260416_1_fantasticks-remember-the-kind-melody recalled attending a performance of the show]] three days after 9/11, along with only about two dozen other people.

* [[GilbertAndSullivan W. S. Gilbert]]'s last play [[http://diamond.boisestate.edu/gas/other_gilbert/hooligan/Hooligan.txt ends with the criminal protagonist dead from heart failure, just as his death sentence was commuted, because he thought the people coming in to tell him he wasn't going to be killed were about to take him to be hanged, and he had a weak heart.]] Gilbert died of heart failure shortly after, while rescuing a young woman from a pond. He had diabetes, which weakens the heart. Context? Very different. Cause of death? The same. * Dunno if this is really where this belongs, but there's a song strictly in the musical version of ''Disney/TheLionKing'', called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p05cVqNiPco&feature=related Endless Night.]] The song tends to be quite creepy, and ridiculously heart-breaking when you realize the man singing this version, Jason Raize, proceeded to hang himself at the age of 28. * Watching Alan Cumming and Hilary Lyon act out the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8F-Az8W6ys Get thee to a nunnery]]" scene from ''{{Hamlet}}'' is just...odd now, as they were married at the time but now aren't.
