Re: Spark Notes

Don't say Macbeth!! Tis extremely bad luck. All sorts of bad things happen to you if you say it backstage. Actors have broken ankles, and lost voices because of it. I guess you call it 'the Scottish Play' but backstage at MCT, we all just say, the m word, or'that play'.  A typical backstage conversation would probably go like this:

Actor A:  So, did you hear about the girl that broke her ankle on the set?
Actor B: Yeah, she said 'that word'
A: what word?
B: You, know, that word
A: huh?
B: the m word?
A: oh.....

As you can see, misunderstandings are common. smile
