Finally, some news for audiences to cheer in the nearly two week old Broadway stagehands strike.
Bravo to State Court Justice Helen Freedman for proving that someone in New York still has some common sense and infinite wisdom by allowing Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! to reopen at Broadway's St. James Theatre. Barring any last minute injunction, the show will reopen Friday morning. For me, it was quite a welcome sight to see all the television camera crews hovering around that theatre -- even their typically jaded selves seemed genuinely excited.
Local One of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (I.A.T.S.E.) continues to strike against The League of American Theatres and Producers.
