Why Do They Say “Break a Leg”?

“Break a leg” is an idiom that is commonly used in theatres. It stands for “Good Luck” and is a way to wish actors and musicians before going out to perform on a stage. “Break a leg” is also considered as a theatrical superstition where saying “Good Luck” turns an act in to a bad one. “Break a leg” has a synonym too which is “Chookas” and is used in Australia. This idiom is also often used outside the theatre in various other professions as well.
