*snicker* Too true.

I don't believe in the curse myself, and didn't even before I did the play three times and had each one be one of the smoothest and most successful productions that company ever had. (Hamlet, OTOH...)

Oh, hey, do I want to be the recipient of the startled hushing, loud cries of "don't say that!" and other assorted reactions? Definitely not!

*giggle* That was a generic "you." You'd be amazed how many people are amused by the hushing and dirty looks, and need to have pointed out to them that engendering anxiety in one's colleagues does not constitute being a team player. And this director does not look kindly on non-team-players.

No, no, I can imagine that would turn you into a rather cranky director. And who could blame you? (Also: Ah! Generic you! Much becomes clear.)

But if all the world's a stage, it's not safe to read it aloud anywhere... < / paranoia >

I'm having serious college theater flashbacks. Although I doubt we were ever this snarky. ;)

You could be surprised. Collecting the quotes in one place makes it much more noticeable. :-)
