The show must go on
"The show must go on" is a well-known phrase in show business, meaning that regardless of what happens, whatever show has been planned still has to be staged for the waiting patrons. The phrase is an abbreviation of the true saying which is "The show must go on, otherwise we'll have to give them their money back": An aside to the insincerity but reality of show business.
