* In one of the performances of the 2004 revival of StephenSondheim's ''Theatre/{{Assassins}}'', the actor who played UsefulNotes/GeraldFord tripped while entering the stage and fell flat on his face. However, since Ford had a history of accidentally tripping and falling (most notoriously down the stairs of Air Force One), the cast ran with it and it became a fixture of the scene in question for most subsequent adaptations.

* During a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsz1raj_FJw performance]] of the live-action Disney/Aladdin show at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disney's California Adventure]], the actors' mics weren't functioning properly during the scene where Jafar gets the magic lamp from the Genie and asks for his three wishes. When he wishes to become Sultan, the actor playing Genie epically pulled damage control on the awkward moment by replying "You're the sultan. Don't know why your first wish couldn't have been for [[BreakingTheFourthWall everybody's mics to work,]] but no, [[ItsAllAboutMe it's]] 'me me me me me me me!' " and pretty much [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome brought the]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny house down.]]

** Tony Danza played Max Bialystock on Broadway for a stint, despite the fact that it is referenced in the script that Max is fat and Tony Danza is certainly not. When they got to the iconic line where Bloom screams "FAAAAT!", Danza would look confused and say "...what?" and Bloom replied "You were fat... once...." and proceeded to call him "You once-fat fatty fat walrus!!"

* The ''ReducedShakespeareCompany'' often changes lines in their script on the spot, and there are even a few parts in the script that are deliberately changed every performance. As an example, towards the end of ''Theatre/TheCompleteWorksOfWilliamShakespeareAbridged'', they perform ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' backwards, advising the audience to [[SubliminalSeduction "listen out for the Satanic messages!"]]. The second line in this scene is different every time - the official script book has it as "''Music/JudasPriest'' is God!", and many variations such as "[[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush George Bush]] is a genius!" and "''Music/FrankSinatra'' is God!" have been heard.

* ''AVeryPotterMusical'': Harry's line about what he'd do with an invisibility cloak ("I'd kick wiener dogs") was an ad-lib when Darren Criss forgot his line. Also, Lauren/Malfoy's line "And-you-have-to-be-my-slave-for-a-whole-day-starting-now!!" was an ad-lib, judging by Joe Moses and Joe Walker's reactions to the line, given that Moses usually kept relatively straight-faced (well, sort of), and he was laughing in the background.

* In the Act II opening number of ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' ''What'd I Miss'', an exchange between Jefferson and Madison goes as follows:
--->'''Madison''': "Where have you been?"
--->'''Jefferson''': "[[CaptainObvious Uh, France?]]"
** This line was improvised by Daveed Diggs early in the show's run off-Broadway, but director Creator/LinManuelMiranda loved it so much he requested that Diggs include the line every night and wrote it into the script when the show made the move to Broadway.

** "Diva's Lament" originally had the line "They're trying to replace me with [[Music/SpiceGirls Posh Spice]]", which following Music/BritneySpears' CreatorBreakdown in 2008 was changed to "I'm constantly replaced by Britney Spears", then in 2014 was replaced again with a reference to MileyCyrus' VMA twerking performance.
