Non-Equity Oliver tour
Posted by Gothampc 2003-11-11 09:24:56


Ok, we've had long discussions about this before, but I just wanted to ask a question. There is a non-Equity Oliver tour going out. My understanding about reading the article is that Cameron Mackintosh is producing it? Is that correct?

It's based on the Cameron Mackintosh production that ran in London.

The tour is definitely Non-Equity, and NETworks is producing it. Is is solely based on the Cameron-Macintosh production.

Cheers,

I have a question regarding this tour , as well as all other non eqity tours. Are the production team ( designers, director) union? How about the crew, and the orchestra, are they union? My guess would be they are. Most theatres they go to would probably insist on a union crew. How can they get away with non union actors? Why don't the other unions supoort each other?

Ya, this show is coming to my town, but I have no desire to see it...do you think it will hit Bway after?

Patti LuPone is playing Nancy in it.

Which means it is equity...

i think there is some joking and confusion here. The tour is non-Equ and Lupone is not in it. If it were to come to NYC and play B'way, i think it would have to turn Equ.

How erroneous. I never stated that to anyone on this board or any other. A quick search will prove that. Why even make such a comment?

To piss you off!

Juliana would not approve of that kind of attitude. I suggest you remove her photo as your icon.

You are doing her a great disservice.

Honey, you didn't piss me off. It just made you look foolish and much fixated on what I post. Guess I should be complimented.

Thanks

This would be the new(1996) Cam Mac version. It is billed as 'the Cameron Mac Intosh Production' though he is not actually producing it. He will turn up one week prior to opening to make sure it stands up to having his name attached to it. Then head home.

as he did with the current Miss Saigon Non-Equity tour (which was excellent...)

Equity's stance =)
