Wire free on Nemo

Saw a show last week of the Nemo Musical which had no wire work at all. Apparently, this wasn't due to the system breaking down, but a lack of appropriately trained safety personnel. So they did a show without any flying. It was bizarre to see, and surprisingly boring. The performers were good, as always, but apparently a lot of the show's dynamism depends on the action of this one scene.

Intriguinig to think that at one point early on, the designers wanted to make the WHOLE show on wires. That would have been a sight to see.
