    The strike initiated by Local One, the stagehands union, on Nov. 10 has come to an end. A tenative agreement was reached between the League of American Theatres and Producers and the union Nov. 28, the 19th day of the strike.

    Charlotte St. Martin, the executive director of the League, addressed the press just before 11 PM with a short statement. St. Martin said, "We are pleased to announce that we have a tentative agreement with Local One of IATSE ending the Broadway strike, and we're happy about that. Performances for all shows will begin tomorrow night — once again, that's Thursday, Nov. 29 — and schedules for all productions will be posted on [the League's official website at www.ilovenytheater.com].

    The agreement is a good compromise that serves our industry. What is most important is that Broadway's lights will once again be shining brightly with a diversity of productions that will delight all theatregoers during this holiday time. We look forward to celebrating the season and welcoming our talented stagehands and the theatregoing public back to Broadway."

    Bernadette Peters will be a part of the Broadway’s Back concert.

    To celebrate the end of the lengthy stagehands strike and the reopening of nearly 30 Broadway shows, the League of American Theatres and Producers presents a free, star-studded concert at the Marriott Marquis Theatre Nov. 30 at noon.

    Entitled Broadway's Back!, the one-time-only event will boast performances by Tony Award winners Angela Lansbury, Bernadette Peters and Bob Martin as well as "American Idol" winner Fantasia. Cast members from nearly every Broadway show will also take part in the event, which is open to the public.

    Seth Rudetsky, currently part of the cast of The Ritz, will lead a full orchestra.

    Doors will open at 11:30 AM.

    Welcome back, Broadway! I'm glad this was resolved. Hopefully both sides are reasonably happy with the deal.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.
