No Deal

At least, not yet.

Over to Crain's:

With no new talks scheduled as of Tuesday morning, Broadway performances through Wednesday’s matinées were canceled.

Broadway producers and the stagehands' union wound up another night of talks at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday without reaching a deal but officials say they have made some progress.

So the nail-biting continues. And probably no hope of struck shows resuming until this weekend at the earliest.

ADDENDUM: Robertson's NYT piece adds some minor news re: Grinch. Jujamcyn is giving up its appeal of the court injunction and letting the show run its course. Whew!

I say, at the earliest. Imagine, even if strike officially is over Thursday, how long it could take to get a show, a big show, up and running again after a two-week hiatus?

And once again, to repeat, the point of contention is no longer the load-in.
