Stagehands, Producers Call Off Talks

Talks broke down Sunday between striking Broadway stagehands and theater producers, with the producers' league announcing it has canceled performances through November 25, the lucrative Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Talks broke down Sunday between striking Broadway stagehands and theater producers, with the producers' league announcing it has canceled performances through November 25, the lucrative Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

''We are profoundly disappointed to have to tell you that talks broke off tonight and that no further negotiations are scheduled,'' Charlotte St. Martin, the executive director of the League of American Theatres and Producers, said in a statement.

''Out of respect for our public and our loyal theatergoers, many of whom are traveling from around the world, we regret that we must cancel performances through Sunday, November 25,'' she added.

Local 1, the stagehands' union, said through its spokesman Bruce Cohen, that ''just before the talks broke off, the producers informed the union that what the local had offered was simply not enough.''

The union declined further comment. (AP)
