According to Playbill, Disney's The Little Mermaid now becomes the fourth Broadway show to indefinitely postpone its scheduled opening night because of the stagehands strike. The other three shows to postpone are Tracy Letts' August: Osage County, Aaron Sorkin's The Farnsworth Invention and Conor McPherson's The Seafarer.
Originally scheduled for December 6, Disney is postponing since the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre is one of the Rialto theatres currently being struck by Local One of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (I.A.T.S.E.) in its nearly two week old action against The League of American Theatres and Producers.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

As someone who has been involved in both politics and public relations, it's no wonder I love watching theatre. Good or bad, it's the raw energy of seeing a live performance that gets my adrenaline pumping. From the moment I saw my very first Broadway show ("Annie" in London in 1979), I was hooked. Now I see as many as 70 shows each year ranging from soaring musicals to two-hander plays. And these eyes just may be in an audience near you!
