Hi, Michael!

Actually, all of the widely cited explanations (there are several) of "break 
a leg" are completely speculative.  There's no evidence at all, and nobody 
really knows.  I personally suspect that it is indeed simple superstition, 
corresponding to the French theatrical equivalent "Merde".

Best,

Spence
