NEW YORK (WPIX) — Hollywood writers have been on strike for three months, now Broadway could soon go dark.
The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, which includes stagehands and make-up artists, is calling for a vote after long and unsuccessful negotiations. The workers have until 2 a.m. Friday to vote, meaning Broadway could go dark in less than a day.
Twenty-eight of Broadway’s 30 productions, including “Hamilton,” “Aladdin,” “Lion King,” and “Harry Potter,” would be impacted.
The last Broadway union strike was in 2007 and it lasted 17 days.
