Great White Way Lights Up Again
After 19 days and estimated losses in the tens of millions, Broadway's stagehand strike is over. The curtains at 26 darkened theaters will rise tonight. Producers and union leaders reached an agreement last last night. James Claffey, the head of the 2,200-member union for stagehands: "The people of Broadway are looking forward to returning to work, giving the theater-going public the joy of Broadway, the greatest entertainment in the world." Details of the agreement have not been disclosed but both sides are thought to have made concessions.
