Added DiffLines:
* Roy Atwell got hit hard with LeslieNielsenSyndrome and his trademark word-confusion when he, new to Broadway, flubbed a line on the opening night and made the audience laugh. Luckily for him he was asked to deliver it the next night.

Cancel this; it's inaccurate
** Early drafts of Gama's IAmSong from ''Theatre/PrincessIda'' didn't include the final line, "And I can't think why!" This was likely added because it happened to fit the rhythm of the musical tag Sullivan composed.

Who Is This Guy Again has been disambiguated due to misuse. Examples will be moved to other tropes where appropriate.
** The exclaimed "Enjolras!" at the start of the ABC Cafe Scene was originally an ad-lib that is now fairly common. (Notably this [[WhoIsThisGuyAgain the only time Enjolras is directly called by his name throughout the entire musical]].)

* On the opening night of the musical version of ''Film/TheProducers'', Nathan Lane improvised the line "Who do you have to fuck to get a break in this town?" in the middle of the song "The King of Broadway." It's been that way ever since, including in the movie. ** Another from ''The Producers'': 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!!" ** Another example from ''Film/TheProducers'' involving Nathan Lane, during the London production of the show, directly after the scene where Max and Leo have just taken Siegfried Oath and are trying to leave Franz's rooftop. Lane, playing Max, tried to open the door leading offstage, but a stagehand had mistakenly locked it before the scene began. When the door didn't open at first, Lane shouted "We're trapped! Trapped like rats with a crazy Nazi!" When another one of the stagehands rushed to unlock it, Lane calmed down and said, "Got it." You can still see part of this in the 2005 film version.

* 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 "[[GeorgeWBush George Bush]] is a genius!" and "''Music/FrankSinatra'' is God!" have been heard.

* This is the very nature of Improv acting. During a performance, all of the actors do this, taking whatever the others do and running with it, no matter what it is. * In any non-improv show that has a flub (be it dropped line, missed cue, or even an issue with the set) the actors must find a way to continue the show without giving away to the audience that all hell has broken loose. Blessings on those actors who carry on, and do so in character.

* When a prop from ''{{USLES}}'' 's production of ''Literature/{{Aladdin}}'' was missing from the final performance (the ring which housed the evil genie) a replacement had to be found at short notice. The villain ended up being the Genie of the Shoe, and Abanazer threatening characters with cries of "Shooooooooeeeee!" ended up being the show's funniest running gag. Children in the audience were even asking to smell the evil shoe.

** Since A Very Potter Senior Year was only done once, with little to no preparation time, a few things went wrong. This being ''Creator/TeamStarkid'', you bet they threw some lines in. Most notably, when ''Creator/DarrenCriss'' turned [[CantTieHisTie his tie in an aboslute mess]], he threw "F*ck the tie!" into the reprise of 'Going Back To Hogwarts', and turned the already awesome song into a hilarious moment.
