I have read the comments at ATC, Piglet.

and it's "breaking" my heart that I won't see the show until two months from now re: re: BREAK A  LEG,  Mr. Jackman and Company !

Anybody know when and how the tradition of sending "Break A Leg" wishes to stage performers (when a show starts) originated?

In Australia they say "chookers" instead of break a leg. No idea of how that started but that is what is commonly said. So "chookers" Hugh! (It's pronounced as "chawkers") . Anyone contacting Hugh would get a gold star (for knowing) from him for saying that.
