I have tickets for Mamma Mia! and Hairspray in mid-April. Makes me wish I believed in God so I could start praying for a settlement. The actors and stagehands are supporting the strike and refusing to cross the picket lines. On some level I’m glad to know the shows, if the strike continues into April, will be closed because I wasn’t any too keen to be crossing picket lines either. I’d come close to deciding to cross but then make a hefty donation to the strike fund to, well, to offset my guilt at crossing a picket line. I’ll still be in NYC over that weekend and I’m sure I can find something to do but bloody hell, I want to see the shows!
Any Dopers miss out on shows yet because of the strike? Any NYC Dopers have any sense of how far apart the sides actually are and the likelihood of a settlement?
