Talent agents will get no discount for Jackman, Craig’s Broadway show

Daniel Craig London, July 16 (ANI): As the worldwide credit crunch takes its toll on many, the producers of actors Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig’s new Broadway show have decided to ban ticket discounts for top talent agents.

Craig, 41, will be making his Broadway debut opposite Aussie actor Hugh Jackman, 40, on September 10 in the dramatic play ‘A Steady Rain’.

The story is about a pair of police officers whose friendship is strained, when they mistakenly return a Vietnamese boy to a cannibalistic serial killer.

According to the New York Post, agents are in uproar after receiving a memo indicating a new policy that restricts sales to not-for-profit organisations, and bans discounts and commissions for theatre talent agents during the 12-week run.

“Business is bad enough these days be cause of the economy. This will choke us further,” the Daily Star quoted one broker as having told the newspaper. (ANI)
