This doesn't completely answer your question, but Equity's website has a list of minimum rates. Click on "Minimum Rates for Theatre" in the menu on the left after following the link below.

It doesnt really matter what part they play. Its about who plays it!

For example, I would think that Idina Menzel will have been on alot more than Kerry/Helen are probably on. When Elaine Paige stars in drowsy her wage will probably be the higest for that show.

Very true but the part being played does make a difference.

Lead roles will get more than ensemble and understudies get paid more than ensemble with just one role.

They also get more if they do 'high risk' things such as flying, swining on ropes, etc!!

'Swining on ropes'

Is that in 'Babe- the Musical'?
