I feel your pain! I did a run of The Music Man many years ago. We were doing matinees and evening shows on Sundays. Well, I decided to grab some Chinese food (General Tso's chicken IIRC) between shows. Not the best decision I ever made. By intermission of the evening show I was "shardleing" to beat the band. Delayed the second act by a good 20 minutes. Matinee breaks are thought out much more thoroughly these days.
