Did you Know? According to Legends, Macbeth had a curse on it.
Speaking the name of the play in a theatre is said to bring a curse. Actors commonly refer to it as "The Scottish Play." No one knows where this idea came from; some speculate that it was inspired by the death of the actor who played Lady Macbeth in the first production during the run of the play. Another theory is that Shakespeare used real witches' spells in the play. If an actor makes a mistake, he or she must leave the room, turn around three times, spit, say a curse word, and then knock to re-enter.
