No Lockout Tonight

No Lockout Tonight

According to New York Post's Michael Riedel the lockout threatened by the League of American Theaters and Producers will not occur before tonight's Broadway performances. Riedel states:

The two sides will meet in Midtown this afternoon to come to a decision on how to ratchet down the dramatic tension and move forward.

On a more ominous note, Riedel quotes one unnamed union source as saying about those discussions:

Senior members of the league reached out to us to discuss the situation and we have agreed to meet with them -- however, we will not be negotiating.

I'll be updating as more information becomes available.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

It's 3:30 pm EDT and there's still nothing new to report, except for the fact that the two sides are meeting. More to come!
