The Philadelphia Inquirer: Touring Broadway Shows in Philly Will Go On, As Traveling Actors’ Union Ratifies a New Contract

Touring members of the Actors’ Equity Association, some of whom passed out fliers at the Kimmel Cultural Campus last month warning of a potential strike, have ratified a new contract.

The union, which represents thousands of professional actors and stage managers, reached a new touring agreement with the Broadway League, the organization that represents show producers.

“Creating a new, unified touring agreement has been a long-term goal, and it was a massive undertaking,” said Kate Shindle, president of Actors’ Equity Association, in a statement announcing the agreement April 28.
