Right now, somewhere in New York, The League of American Theatres and Producers and Local One of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (I.A.T.S.E.) are meeting once again -- thank you Disney -- in hopes of ultimately reaching a settlement on this the first day of the second week of the Broadway stagehands strike. Nevertheless, all Broadway shows currently impacted will remain dark through Sunday.
So if you're holding tickets for the following shows this afternoon and evening, as well as on Sunday (click here for ticket exchange policies), your show will not be performing:
A Bronx Tale
A Chorus Line
August: Osage County
Cyrano de Bergerac
Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Is He Dead?
Monty Python's Spamalot
Rock 'N' Roll
The Color Purple
The Drowsy Chaperone
The Farnsworth Invention
The Lion King
The Little Mermaid
The Phantom Of The Opera
The following eight Broadway shows continue to perform during the strike because they are either in non-profit houses or are covered by other contracts:
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Let's hope that some good news will be shared later today so that Broadway can be fully back in business. Here's wishing the best to both sides to reach a fair and equitable settlement.
