Without drama or fanfare, Broadway musicians and producers reach accord

NEW YORK (AP) -- Broadway musicians have a new contract. And for once, the agreement was reached without drama.

Broadway producers and Musicians Local 802 announced they have come to terms on a new three-year pact.

The amity was a far cry from 2003, when musicians went on strike for four days, shutting down more than a dozen shows and costing Broadway (m) millions of dollars.

The musicians agreed to forego a couple of pay raises in exchange for better health care coverage.
