The stars of Gloria Estefan's hit Broadway musical On Your Feet! performed on Tuesday (06Sep16) without any of their moving sets due to technical issues.
The hit New York show features a variety of changing backgrounds and sets as it takes fans on a journey through Gloria and her manager husband Emilio's lives, but producers were forced to switch up Tuesday's production after the deck automation console, the mechanical device which controls the moving stage parts, ground to a halt.
Instead of cancelling that night's performance, castmembers rallied and pressed on with the show, much to the audience's delight.
Show spokeswoman Whitney Holden Gore tells Playbill.com: "Despite the lack of scenery, the audience was incredibly supportive of the cast and crew throughout the performance and was quick to give them a standing ovation they earned at the end of it all!"
Actress Ana Villafane, who portrays a young Gloria in the musical, took to Twitter after the curtains came down and thanked fans for their patience.
"Major shoutout to our @OnYourFeetBway audience! Tonight was eventful. &THAT is the magic of live theatre!" she wrote. "We love you&thank you for the love."
The technical issues were resolved by the end of Tuesday, allowing the show to continue as normal on Wednesday (07Sep16).
