Following more than two years of attempts to negotiate a new Lab Agreement with the Broadway League, Equity’s National Council authorized a strike for all show development including the Lab Agreement, Workshop Agreement and Staged Reading Contracts and Staged Reading Guidelines with the Broadway League or an allied producer. DO NOT WORK show development with the Broadway League or an allied producer. As an Equity member, you may not perform or stage manage without an Equity contract. That’s rule number one on the back of your Equity card:

Under no circumstances may you rehearse or perform in any company without a properly executed and signed Equity contract.

You face union discipline and risk losing your membership for any violation of this membership rule – which applies even if your membership is inactive.

Non-members (including Equity Membership Candidates) who take developmental work with the Broadway League or an allied producer during the strike will lose their eligibility to join Equity permanently. Non-members are also welcome to reach out to NotALabRat@ActorsEquity.org with any questions regarding whether a project they've been offered would break the strike.

If you are offered employment by a producer listed below or an allied producer, contact NotALabRat@ActorsEquity.org. All communication between you and your union is strictly confidential. 

An employer may tell you not to speak to the union because their offer falls outside of the kind of work we organize, but Equity alone determines if a production is in the union’s jurisdiction. Producers, agents and managers do not, nor is it up to an individual member to decide. Equity’s strength and our ability to negotiate better terms and conditions come solely from the unity of our membership. Learn more in the Strike Center.

In addition to the general list below of producers, please note the following developmental works are explicitly on the Do Not Work list for all developmental production, including staged readings:

  • Dave
  • Flamingo Kid
  • Tootsie
  • MJ Musical
  • Once Upon a One More Time
  • Heart of Rock & Roll
  • Almost Famous
  • Moulin Rouge
