American Girl Actors Back On The Job

“Actors working in musical shows at the American Girl Place theatre in midtown Manhattan returned to work on Saturday after walking out for two days late last week, an Equity official said Monday. Though the two sides have not resolved the central issue — whether management would recognize the actors’ attempts to join Actors’ Equity Association and thereby receive the benefits a union contract would provide — officials at American Girl welcomed the actors back and said they would be paid for the time they missed, according to Maria Somma, a spokesperson for Equity.”
