The #Macbeth warning #broadway
This was my favorite thing.
no but the whole Macbeth thing is legit okay
my school was doing Pride and Prejudice last spring [I had some tiny little extra part, but that’s not important]. The girl playing Mrs. Bennet said “Macbeth” as a joke, which then was explained because seriously we’re high schoolers I was surprised even she knew about it we don’t just know random curse knowledge
the play was set back a week because Mr. Darcy got appendicitis, Elizabeth Bennet broke her right forearm, Mr. Bingley lost his voice, and Mrs. Bennet went head over handlebars on her bike all in the week of the play.
you don’t f*** with the Macbeth curse okay if Supernatural has taught me anything it’s not to f*** with curses
….omg can we have an episode of Supernatural about the Macbeth curse?
IT COULD BE THE MUSICAL EPISODE WE ALL WANT OMFG
once a guy said macbeth in our theater and then the entire set came falling down
several people got concussions
How the hell do they preform the play,
There are characters named Macbeth
You can say it but only in the context during the play.. No other time
Thank you for explaining.
(I’ve literally wondered about that for years)
we had a travelling Shakespeare troupe come in and do Macbeth in 30 Minutes for us the same day as our opening night for the fall play. They used our theatre and afterwards had a discussion where they regularly said the name while every single person in the play cringed with every word.
We had to cancel the preview because we almost got sued for copyright issues because the school’s financial sector forgot to send the check for the rights, a few people missed their cues because they completely disappeared for five minutes, two costumes ripped very noticeably, and a few props went missing.
Don’t. Fuck. With. The. Curse.
I know superstitions are usually a thing people try and mock, but seriously. Don’t fuck with the MacBeth superstition. Just don’t. If you say MacBeth in a theater you have a few things to do before being allowed back in. ALL. THEATER KIDS. WILL FUCK YOU UP. IF YOU SAY. MACBETH. WHEN THEY’RE NOT DOING MACBETH.
Like they’ve got a sixth sense for this shit, they’ll be like, DID YOU JUST SAY IT?!?!
Now I want to be a little shit and do it.

Oh wow OK let’s please signal boost this because some recent ones have been GIFs of horror and so on, and that makes Tumblr incredibly unsafe for a good amount of people. S:
WHAT THE FUCK
SOMEONE CAME UP FOR THE IDEA OF THIS.
SOMEONE WROTE A SCRIPT FOR THIS.
SOMEONE UTTERED THESE WORDS INTO A MICROPHONE.
SOMEONE ANIMATED THIS.
SOMEONE GREENLIGHTED THIS.
SOMEONE DIRECTED THIS.
SOMEONE PRODUCED THIS.
DID NOT ONE PERSON EVER STOP TO THINK THAT MAYBE THIS WAS A TERRIBLE IDEA?
It might just be me, but I fucking love this movie from beginning to end.
I need to prove a point to my homophobic friend.I’m writing down the urls of everyone who reblogs this in a notebook, and will present it to my friend when it is sufficiently full.
