Stagehands and Producers Resume Talks as Broadway Strike Enters 2nd Week

Twenty-seven Broadway shows have now been dark for over a week, but there may be a light at the end of the tunnel — today, the Broadway stagehands’ union Local One and the League of American Theatres and Producers resumed negotiations for the first time since the union went on strike on November 10. No word yet on whether there has been any progress, but we’ll keep you updated. In the meantime, Broadway fans will have to settle for the eight shows that are still open (their theaters are on different contracts with Local One): The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Cymbeline, Mary Poppins, Mauritius, Pygmalion, The Ritz, Xanadu, and Young Frankenstein.
