This is from my friend & colleague, Michael Bell, regarding the Actors Equity Showcase code in New York City.
"Wanted to let you and your readers know that Equity is re-evaluating the Showcase Code, and I'm on the sub-committee. This may be a chance to bring about some changes in the Code that will make it easier to do Off-Off-Broadway theater. So if any of your readers are actors (Equity or not) who work regularly under the Showcase Code and would like their voice heard, here's one way: Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. What about the Code works for you? What doesn't? How could it serve the needs of Off-Off-Broadway actors better?"
