Saturday Black Cats and Ghosts

Saturday Black Cats and Ghosts

According to https://thelondonbluebird.wordpress.com/2012/08/16/witches-ghosts-whistling-and-cats-a-guide-to-theatrical-superstitions/, a theater isn’t a “genuine theatre” unless it has a black cat and a ghost. Hmmm…

I’ve been in several theaters that are said to have a resident ghost (or two), but I never encountered one, and I never knew a theater with its own resident black cat. I’ve seen cats that wandered inside the building and once there was one that walked onstage – during the performance.

Among the general population a black cat is usually considered to be bad luck, but not in theatrical circles. In fact, some performers even bring their pet black cats backstage for luck.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstitious Secret #170:
“Every theater must have a black cat and a ghost.”
