With our annual show Fiorentini’s Got Talent coming up this weekend, many of our participants will be busy with their last preparations. Practice, practice and more practice are the key words here, but everyone knows that, in a superstitious business like the theatre, you sometimes have to do that little bit extra for a successful show. We’ve lined up a couple of the most common stagey superstitions along with their backstories, and we’ll leave it up to you to sort out the curses from the common sense.
