So yesterday I was walking in the hall after the show and I hear one of my young actors loudly explaining to his grandparents; "You see, there is this word that you can't say because it's a really bad word, but everyone backstage has been saying this really bad word all the time and - "
So I pause and I call over "Don't worry about it, we'll deal with it tomorrow."

His grandmother's face nearly splits open with relief. "Oh good," she sighs. "You know about this?"

That is when it dawned on me and I found myself standing in the middle of the hallway in the Performing Arts Center explaining loudly for grandmother and all the other parents to hear:

"The really bad word that you can't say is not, repeat NOT the F-Bomb! It's only MacBeth! Not the F-Bomb!"
