Good Luck Macbeth Theatre in midtown has a story, and here it is:
"Theatre superstition dictates that there are two phrases which can never be uttered inside the theatre space; two phrases so completely terrifying, accursed, blighted and ghastly their very mention is said to bring catastrophe upon the cast and crew. These phrases are 'Good Luck' and 'Macbeth'....so we named our theatre company GOOD LUCK MACBETH."
The "merry band of weirdos" who run the theatre host an Artemisia Movie House. On May 24, come enjoy the showing of the 1982 comedy/crime/mystery "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid."
Steve Martin and Carl Reiner's brilliant spoof of classic detective films is itself a classic. Martin stars as a private op tasked with finding the killers of a noted cheese scientist. Really. Starring Rachel Ward as the scientist's daughter. Also starring Humphrey Bogart, Bette Davis, Burt Lancaster, Cary Grant, Lana Turner and Joan Crawford.
