   In 1974, the Houston Grand Opera premiered ?The Seagull,? based on the
Anton Checkov play. The rehearsal did not go well. At one point, the
libretto called for the sound of a gunshot offstage. The stage hands did
not have a blank gun for the rehearsal, so they simulated the gunshot by
slamming a two-by-four on the stage floor. The director was not happy.

?Where?s the gunshot?? he demanded.

An apologetic stagehand replied, ?We don?t have a gun.?

?Well,? the director huffed, ?there certainly was a gun in Dallas!?
