Mirvish Productions is the premier name in Toronto Theatre, bringing musicals, dramas, comedies and more to the theatre stage for over 50 years.
This is the 13th issue of Meanwhile, so we thought it appropriate to focus on theatrical superstitions.
Theatre people are famously superstitious. One can’t really blame them because superstitions are born when people feel they don’t have control of their own destinies. In the theatre there is a long list of what you should never do to court good luck and what you should always do to avoid failure. In the Archives column this week, some of these superstitions are revealed.
But the biggest superstition is the belief in theatre ghosts. Most old theatres are said to be haunted. We explore this theme in a new six-part biweekly series called Ghosts of the Royal Alex. Every second week there will be a new song and a new chapter in a serialized story.
Meanwhile is our weekly e-magazine about theatre-going, the performing arts and all its offshoots delivered to your inbox while the Mirvish Theatres are closed.
