TriviaThis Week's Trivia: Why is it considered bad luck for an actor to whistle on or off stage?
Correct Answer: Because original stage crews were hired from ships in port. Sailors, and by extension theatrical riggers, used coded whistles to communicate scene changes. Actors who whistled could confuse them into changing the set or scenery. This confusion could result in injury or death.
Trivia Winner: Ethan: Original stage riggers were sailors who used specific whistles to mark scene changes. Whistling could cause them to change a scene and drop something on you.
MasquotWe took 39 Steps. Womp womp.
