Broadway stagehands, producers strike tentative deal


IATSE/Labor One and the Broadway producers have struck a tentative deal late last night, with all shuttered shows back to performing this evening. Some 20 Broadway theaters are back in action after weeks. Musicals such as "The Phantom of the Opera" and "The Lion King," closed since negotiations ended 11/10, were among the first set to reopen tonight. 27 theaters in all were shuttered in the strike.
