Neil Patrick Harris, Bryan Cranston & More Stand with Senator Charles E. Schumer for a Broadway a Tax Break
by BWW News Desk - Apr 7, 2014

U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer today joined actors Neil Patrick Harris, Bryan Cranston, other top Broadway actors and characters, as well as a number of Broadway producers, as he announced his campaign to give Broadway and live theater productions a major tax break that will encourage investment and spur job creation on the Great White Way.
