Mayor Invites Broadway Strikers to Talks

From Times Wire Reports

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg invited striking Broadway musicians and producers to hold round-the-clock negotiations at the mayoral mansion, and both sides continued bargaining late into the night.

Bloomberg said the 4-day-old strike was causing a “severe economic impact” as well as the “disappointment of theater-goers from around the world.”

The city’s tourism office said the overall loss for the weekend was about $7.2 million.
