Today, as the Broadway stagehands strike is now 14 days old -- The League of American Theatres and Producers is being struck by Local One of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (I.A.T.S.E.) -- one show is making a comeback today: Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas! is reopening at Broadway's St. James Theatre.
It joins the following shows that remain open despite the strike because they are either in said non-profit houses or are covered by other contracts:
Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas!
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
If you're holding tickets through Sunday for any of the other Broadway shows listed below, (click here for ticket exchange policies), your show will not be performing:
A Bronx Tale
A Chorus Line
August: Osage County
Cyrano de Bergerac
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
Speaking of that very last one, I'm currently in Stuttgart, Germany to see the German language version of Wicked: Die Hexen Von Oz. I only wish New York City audiences were still able to see the production that started it all.
Here's hoping that The League gets itself back to the bargaining table with Local One soon.
