Broadway returns to stage

The latest good news in a sea of strikes is that Broadway will resume production tonight

The latest good news in a sea of strikes is that Broadway will resume production tonight. Out-of-towners and ticket holders can now rejoice, as holiday plans can proceed as scheduled (but no such luck for Thanksgiving weekend travelers). According to Bloomberg News, stagehands agreed on a new contract last night, putting an end to the 19-day strike.

In a display of eagerness to bring back its customers , immediately after the strike ended, the producers of Chicago announced that all tickets for tonight's performance would be sold at the box office for $26.50.

Entertainment Weekly notes that the shut down of 26 Broadway plays and musicals for the past three weeks cost the city of New York an estimated $100 million in lost income.
