STATEMENT BY MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON BROADWAY STAGEHAND STRIKE
"I had hoped that the theatre owners and the stagehands' union would resolve their differences without a strike. While this is a private labor matter, the economic impact is very public and will be felt far beyond the theatres closed today. It is in everyone's interest for both sides to come together and resolve their differences. I have spoken to both the theatre owners and the stagehands and the City continues to stand ready to help in any way we can."
