For me that's what separates people who belong in theatre from people who don't: the ability to improvise a way around a problem until it can be sorted out (or until there's really no hope of continuing). On the other hand, more than a few times I've seen shows come to a grinding halt while everyone stands around looking gormless.

I actually have this entire performance What's great about it is that It was also the first performance of the understudy Mme. Giry, Sally Williams, so she handled it really well.
In the video I mentioned before where Mme Giry doesn't come on stage for "Ms Daae has returned", the guys player Firmin and Andre just walked around gormless looking around as if to say "okay... now what?!?!".

The clip is from the Second National Tour in the States. Some of the regional theatres over there obviously have bigger orchestra pits that 'stick out' beyond the edge of the stage more - in the AV in London, the pit is more concealed beneath the stage, so a bootleg as clear as that one would be impossible to film in London.
Edited to add: Incidentally, there's footage of the conductor from the London production back in 2006 doing the rounds on YouTube. It's not nearly as clear as the recent 2NT conductor videos though
