Stagehands at the Goodman Theater declared that they wanted better wages and more control over their work.  The Goodman Theater said, “no”, so the Stagehands took the matter into their own hands. 

Roger Ebert has called the stagehands strike one of the “best of the last decade”, giving it “an enthusiastic thumbs up.”  Joel Siegel has said “I was blown away!  This has ‘blockbuster’ written all over it.”  Gene Shalit declared: “It’s better than ‘Erin Brokovich.’  I’ve been at the
edge of my seat waiting for the strikers’ next move.”   

What’s all the enthusiasm about?  For six weeks, the stagehands have been walking the line in front of the Goodman Theater, refusing to go back to work until their demands are met.  The Goodman is a multimillion-dollar theater with a prestigious reputation, but they have refused these demands.  Why are they paying the stagehands so little RESPECT? 

We’ll ask them this question on Friday, along with some others, so gather up a picket sign and come walk the line with the Goodman Stagehands and DAN.  Let’s win this one!
