Thank You...

Thank You...

To AutoFly

and Decksound

and Ongo

and PropGal

and SpotOne

and RocketRon

and WorkerBee

and KathyLongIsland

and JerseyGuy

and BC

and what seemed like an endless parade of Anonymouses (is the plural Anonymi??) for using Steve On Broadway (SOB) as a people's forum on the strike.

You have my ongoing admiration and respect.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, next time I take in a Broadway show -- and yes, there will be a next time -- as a member of the audience, I'll be applauding for those of you we never see behind the curtain every bit as much as for the cast and production itself.

You've taught me a lot about an aspect of the theatre I had never really known too much about. I've certainly been wowed by your wizardry, but now I have a newfound appreciation of what it is you do to make live theatre so magical.

Thank you for that! And I invite you to keep coming back.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB)

When the curtain went up at Jerseyboys tonight ,there was this BigCheer!
Some thought it was for the Stagehands/ some thought it was for the actors/Some thought it was Just the excitement of being back up!
Than we Realized it,
WE ALL WERE CHEERING PATRONS, ACTORS, MUSIATIONS, CREW

We were all happy to be back.
Collectively we felt that we killed the dragon.
That time of magic and innocents is gone but we are still here!
Equity / 802 / IATSE…We Are One

The next major contract for the league to negotiate? Equity's.

There are many more Actors / Stagemangers than Stagehands

And Chorus members make about the same as B-rate Stage hands

I bet the League is Drooling.....

At The Press Confrence Ending the Strike
Hershel Waxman Exited,
Charlotte Exited Jim Claffy and Local one boys Exited...
all rather high profile exits

All the Shubert and Jumancyn People kinda snuck out the back..
I hope they were embassased...

I understand some backstage employees (non local 1 stagehands)
Were only paid a partial checks.
They were docked because they honored the picket line.
