We're a society that toootally believes in superstitions. We wear certain items for luck, we cross our fingers when we want things to happen, we refuse to walk under ladders, and we think a broken mirror causes seven years of awful luck.
These beliefs carry over into the theater world, too. Like the alleged curse surrounding Macbeth, which prevents actors, audience members, and everyone else from uttering the production's name, here are 10 other theater superstitions.
Is it May already? This month, concert festivals really kick it into high gear, and many artists launch their summer tours. The NBA Playoffs are under way, and now that the weather is nicer, it's time for the The Players Championship.
Although no new Broadway shows are opening this month, many will likely flock to see the productions recently nominated for Tony Awards, including Pippin and I'll Eat You Last. Plus, there are plenty of touring shows around the country. So in addition to some May flowers, here are the month's upcoming events in concerts, sports, and theater:
The Package Tour: Can't get enough of boy bands? Thankfully, you don't have to, as New Kids on the Block, 98 Degress, and Boyz II Men launch their tour May 28.
