|The Broadway League and Actors’ Equity Association Reach Agreement
The Broadway League and its coordinated bargaining partners are pleased to announce that a long-term agreement with the Actors’ Equity Association has been reached regarding compensation and rules related to work performed before a production comes to Broadway.
“We are happy that we were able to successfully restructure the previous pre-production agreements,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. “We are thrilled that our producers can now go back to the important work of developing the best theatre in the world.”
The current strike is over and all pre-production work sessions will be resumed.
THE BROADWAY LEAGUE (Charlotte St. Martin, President), founded in 1930, is the national trade association for the Broadway industry. The League’s 700-plus members include theatre owners and operators, producers, presenters, and general managers who present in nearly 200 markets in North America.
