broadwaystrike1 Broadway Strike Talks Break Down AgainBroadway will remain dark tonight as talks between stagehands and producers have broken off early this morning after a second straight all-night negotiation session. No new talks are planned and the strike is now in its third week.

NY1 reports:

Union spokesman Bruce Cohen emerged from the talks just before 5 a.m., and spoke with NY1’s Stephanie Simon about the progress that’s being made behind closed doors.

"Right now it’s the 9th inning of the 7th game of the World Series. I’m optimistic both sides are still talking, even as the sun rises over Manhattan. People are getting their second wind. There’s still hope that before people leave the building today, there will be an agreement,” he said.
