I bet there were side agreements in those cases - not just broken rules and the union ignoring that. Not excusing how this was handled by 802 - that was very

Apparently the Local 802 president, Adam Krauthamer, has cited an old rule which bars orchestrators from playing in the pits of shows they have orchestrated and so Charlie Rosen was fired just hours before the first preview of Be More Chill.Â

If anyone has more information, I would be curious what happens when/if a SET Equity tour with a lower minimum plays the hou

I’ve had a run ofvery bad luck lately with shows running longer than advertised, causing me to miss my train home. Just want to make sure that I’m planning appropriately for this one if they have underestimated or misrepresented the run time. Thanks!"
Shows rarely misrepresent run times in my experience. During previews run time can vary from night to night, not jus

HogansHero said: "Kad has it right above. To elaborate and extend a bit: we are talking about work under the lab contract. That contract provides reduced compensation. The other people mentioned are either (a) paid in full or (b) not involved in the lab. (It seems there is a basic misunderstanding by some about what we are talking about.)
Please note, also, that a producer can pay actors their full contract and not involve any of these special lab contract provisions in th
Musicians and publicists are often involved in the development stage. But regardless, I wasn't saying they were, I was saying they will claim they make creative contributions to shows before they open and should also share in the profits. Do you really think 802 and Local One won't ask for something similar if Equity gets it? They may not have a valid case for asking for it, but I bet they will.
BJR said: "What Equity is saying publicly is they're asking for more money weekly (as it has been the 1k/week negotiated 11 years ago) and a split of 1% share after recoupment.
Negotiating higher pay is always difficult but I think splitting a share after recoupment is long overdue for casts of commercial productions. The work actors do during these labs truly adds to the show's success. (And stipulating it would be after recoupment rightly targets shows who have s

What exactly are the implications of an equity vs. non-equity tour and can someone explain what a networks or troika tour is?"
You heard incorrectly. A fire marshall wouldn’t have the right to do that. Rather, it is a violation of FAA standards to fly over people, and the production would have never considered doing it in the first place."
A quick google search shows that the FAA doesn't have authority over drones flown indoors. And according to the article below the fire marshall had to sign off on them for Paramour and the original plan was to have them go ove
