WRAL: Union Strike: Broadway Actors Plan Rally Outside DPAC Before 'Beetlejuice'

Broadway actors on Tuesday are expected to rally outside DPAC before the opening of Beetlejuice in a push for new contracts.

Actors and stage crews will be outside DPAC between 6 and 7:30 p.m. to hand out leaflets to explain why touring Broadway shows in Durham and across the country could come to a halt.

Broadway could go dark as Actors’ Equity Union, representing actors and stage mangers, has issued a strike threat warning. The Actors’ Equity Union is back at the bargaining table Tuesday with the Broadway League, which oversees the contracts for thousands of touring performers.
