Local workers who arrived this week will not cross picket line, leaving no stage hands available to run show, but Kravis still plans to hold performance.
"Jersey Boys" tells the story of the rock n' roll group The Four Seasons and in 2010, the show played in front of sell-out crowds at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.
This time, those crowds may not get the chance to watch it. The union that represents stagehands at the venue has been on strike since Tuesday. Members claim they have been working without a contract for more than ten years.
Picketers remain outside the Kravis Center and crews arriving to set up the show refused to cross the picket line.
Trucks, loaded with equipment for the "Jersey Boys" set, remained unpacked Wednesday morning, with an 8 p.m. Wednesday night show scheduled to open a nearly 3 week run.
A union represenative said the show will not go on, referring to the opening night performance, but we spoke with Kravis Center spokesperson Elizabeth Dashiell Wednesday, who told us the show will be performed as planned. She says the public will be notified if that changes.
