All Night Long

All Night Long

Talks between The League of American Theatres and Producers and Local One of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (I.A.T.S.E.) lasted through the night and recessed at 6:30 this morning. The bargaining will resume at 6:30 p.m. this evening, according to Variety.

Mondays are typically quiet days on the Great White Way as most shows are usually dark. Today marks the 17th day of the Broadway stagehands strike.

Let's hope for a positive outcome when the two sides return to negotiate tonight.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Insiders say talks had stalled in the early morning.
The stagehands gave back the entire Contract.

Thanks for your excellent coverage of the strike, Steve.

I'm visiting NYC now, and it's very weird. Times Square is like a ghost town. I can get a table at a restaurant, sidewalks are navigatable, there are seats on the subway. It's just not right. Have been wishing the stagehands well on the line, but I hope for everyone's sake this is over soon.

"Progress was made in the 20 hours of negotiations Sunday morning to 6 a.m. Monday," Cohen said. "Each side is being very creative and imaginative as the search is made to find compromise. But, with all of us looking into each other's the bleary eyes as the sun was rising over Times Square, the decision was made to adjourn, get some sleep and come back tonight (Monday) with clear heads and, hopefully, new ideas."

The league declined comment on the resumption of talks.
