Quote for the Day 2

“Broadway theater is the No. 1 reason tourists cite for coming into New York City....Having that be perceived as unreliable is a bad thing for the city. Even if everything gets resolved, once you have had a shutdown and have a lot of disappointed tourists here for a show, that message travels.”

-Kathryn Wylde, president of "Partnership for New York City."

Of course, nonprofit and Off-Broadway are unacceptable alternatives.

This and more about the projected economic impact of a work-stoppage here.
