Stagehand Strike Shuts Down Broadway Shows

More than two dozen shows on Broadway went dark Saturday, as stagehands — who have been engaged in a bitter contract dispute with producers — went on strike. No new negotiations have been scheduled.

Charlotte St. Martin, president of the League of American Theaters and Producers, says the strike couldn't come at a worse time of year.
