Mean Girls

BroadwayWorld recently reported that the Broadway community is taking a stand with Actors' Equity to increase the minimum salary for developmental labs.

The "Not a Lab Rat" campaign was started to help equity members fight for their right to getting due credit for taking part in the development in a show. In addition to salary increases, Equity is fighting to get profit sharing for the people who take part in the labs.

Yesterday, Actors' Equity took to Twitter to praise Mean Girls for doing just that. The production has offered profit sharing to the Equity members who offered creative contributions during show development.

Mean Girls features a book by nine-time Emmy Award winner Tina Fey, based on her screenplay for the film, music by three-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Richmond, and lyrics by two-time Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin. Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs.
