Will the Broadway Stagehands Strike a Deal?

NEW YORK (AP) _ The curtain is rising on a new act looking for a
happy ending in a strike that has shut down more than two-dozen
plays and musicals on Broadway.

With the lucrative Thanksgiving holiday week approaching,
theater producers and striking stagehands are headed back to the
bargaining table Saturday. Neither side is commenting on prospects for
a settlement.

The week-old walkout involves work rules: how many stagehands
producers have to hire to open a Broadway show and keep it running.
That includes carpenters, electricians, lighting and sound
technicians and the people who handle the scenery and props.

Thanksgiving week is one of the most important of the year for
Broadway, particularly for family friendly shows.
