Broadway Shows Threatened by Stagehand Strike

The Great White Way remains mostly dark as some 20 shows have shut down because of a strike by Broadway theaters' stagehands. A long strike means some shows could close. Both sides are trying to set up a negotiating session on Sunday. The union wants to preserve certain work rules to protect members who don't work on shows open 52 weeks, but those that close after a couple of months or weeks.
