BWW's Theatre Industry Podcast 'The OHenry Report' Goes Inside Equity Strike Against Developmental Projects with The Clyde Fitch Reports' Leonard Jacobs
On this episode of BroadwayWorld's theatre business podcast, "The OHenry Report," Broadway producer and investor Oliver Henry Roth talks with Leonard Jacobs the founder and executive editor of The Clyde Fitch Report, an online outlet that covers the crossroads of arts and politics.
Last month, Jacobs published an article examining the on-going negotiations between Actors' Equity Association and the Broadway League over the developmental lab contract. In his article, Jacobs quotes four anonymous sources impacted by the strike against developmental projects.
Roth and Jacobs discuss the points of contention for AEA, and how the situation might be remedied.
