Saturday Superstition: Mirror

Saturday Superstition: Mirror

Here we go again with yet another theatrical superstition. This one is about mirrors. Apparently it is bad luck to have a mirror onstage. Very bad luck.

Most people know the old saying that breaking a mirror brings seven years bad luck, but if it happens onstage it brings seven years of bad luck to the theater itself, not just the person who broke the mirror.

Mirrors are fine, of course, backstage. But bringing one onstage runs of the risk of the seven year problem. Unless, of course, it’s onstage in a musical called A Chorus Line. Hmmmm….

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstition #112:
“ A mirror onstage is bad luck.”
