The Hollywood Reporter: Actors’ Equity and Broadway League Reach Settlement Over Non-Union ‘Waitress’ Tour

The Broadway League and Actors’ Equity have reached an agreement over the grievance filed related to the non-union touring production of Waitress. 

The agreement sees the 22 actors and stage managers who were part of the tour, which ended in June 2022, receive a monetary settlement. In exchange, Actors’ Equity withdrew the double-breasting grievance filed against NAMCO, the producers behind the Broadway production, according to a communication sent to members. Waitress, based on the 2007 film and featuring a score by Sara Bareilles, ran on Broadway from 2016 through 2020 and from September to December 2021.
