In celebration of April Fool’s Day, Broadway.com asked some of our favorite stars to share their funniest work-related pranks. In some cases, the stars initiated the practical joke; in others, the joke was on them. Read on for true tales of behind-the-scenes tomfoolery.
REBECCA FAULKENBERRY (Sherrie in Rock of Ages)
"The night before Thanksgiving when I was about 15, I was sitting upstairs in the kitchen with my mum while she prepared the turkey, and all of the innards (kidneys, liver) were sitting on the counter in little plastic bags. So I came up with the brilliant idea to take them out of their bags, go downstairs to my brother’s room where he was sleeping and lay them out on his face. Then I woke him up and told him what it was. I thought I was hilarious! He didn't think so."
