Non-Union Show Maybe Nearby:
Civic Light Opera of South Bay Cities plans to reduce its debt by presenting a few imported shows — including a nonunion tour.
...union members won't be happy if South Bay presents a non-Equity 42nd Street. I've got some very angry actors who might decide to pass out informational leaflets to South Bay audiences, Holly says
(from Los Angeles Times).

Go to London, See a Show - that's how you can help:
For the first time since the Blitz during the Second World War, every West End theatre cancelled its performances that day. Several shows that were due to perform matinee performances cancelled those first; then, as the police urged everyone to stay away from central London, evening performances were cancelled, too. All public subway and bus transport in central London was suspended in the immediate wake of the attacks, making it impossible for performers or audiences alike to get to the theatres in any case. Some theatres, like the Royal Court, automatically refunded all patrons who had booked. Others are seeking to exchange tickets for future performances
(from BackStage.com). Find out about specific shows at londontheatre.co.uk.
