Rest easy if you have Broadway tickets this weekend. No action over the impasse between Great White Way producers and the stagehands, who have been working without a contract since the end of July, will take place during the next 48 hours.
According to Playbill, Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of the League of American Theatres and Producers, issued the following statement:
This weekend, the shows will go on. All Broadway theatregoers who have tickets should come in and enjoy the performances. To those of you who have followed media reports of the Broadway contract negotiations with Local One and have heard that we may be shutting down today or over the weekend, we want to assure you that that is not the case.
No lockout. No strike. Stay tuned for the latest come Monday.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
