NEW YORK (AP) - Negotiations are set to resume today between Broadway producers and striking stagehands in a walkout that has entered a 19th day.
The talks come a day after a 13-hour session failed to end the work stoppage.
Progress has reportedly been slow on the thorny issue of how many stagehands are required to open a show and keep it running.
Most of Broadway has been dark for more than two weeks now because of the strike. Those shows remain canceled through today. Eight other productions remain open.
New box office figures show the strike's financial toll. Grosses for the nine shows that ran Thanksgiving week totaled just $4.29 million. That compares to $23.3 million during the same week last year when more than two dozen productions were playing.
