TO GO WITH AFP STORY-US-THEATRE-SOCIAL BY PAOLA MESSANA Giant billboards advertise theater and musical shows around Time Square on Broadway Avenue, the heart of the US theatre industry, in New York 10 October 2007. A wage dispute involving New York's theater producers and stagehands is threatening to bring the curtain down on dozens of Broadway shows, unless a last-minute compromise can be reached. The last such shutdown occurred in 2003, when a strike by Broadway musicians saw shows cancelled for four days. Any stoppage would cost the theaters heavily as Broadway now pumps some five billion USD into the New York economy a year, fed largely by US and foreign tourists.
