How the Grinch Stole … Thanksgiving?

The Broadway stagehands strike goes on, but there has been drama at the St. James Theatre this week. The theater was scheduled to be temporary home to the holiday musical How the Grinch Stole Christmas when Local One began its strike on November 10. However, due to the fact that Local One negotiated a contract with Grinch earlier this year that is separate from the one currently under dispute, the union agreed to go back to work at the St. James so that the show could resume. Unfortunately, though, Jujamcyn Theatres is not cooperating, refusing to open the doors to the theater until Local One ends its strike entirely. The latest news is that Grinch‘s producer is going to court to seek an injunction to force the theater to open up. Stay tuned …
