Saturday Superstition Good Night

Saturday Superstition Good Night

Olive Thomas was a Ziegfeld girl who died tragically. See my blog about her here: http://balletwebb.blogspot.com/search?q=Olive+Thomas.

If you should perform at the New Amsterdam Theater on Broadway (where Olive once performed) you will see find her portrait hanging beside the stage door. This is so the cast and crew can say “good night” to her as they leave the theater.

Since Olive is said to haunt the theater, wishing her a good night and blowing her a kiss is believed to appease her spirit and prevent any mischief.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstition #169:
“Say good night and blow a kiss to Olive.”
