More union trouble at JB

NY Times Arts Beat piece on musicians local 802's plans to protest at Lincoln Center.

Dispiriting response from the management of LC: "A spokeswoman, Betsy Vorce, said Lincoln Center had no authority over programs presented by renters of its halls." I know, all venues rent nowadays; it's just disappointing to think of the Joffrey as not being presented by LC, and treated like a college graduation. I always think the venue comes out on top in these situations; the average viewer probably won't make the distinction b/t the venue renting or presenting (the average viewer I bet assumes the latter); they get their money w/limited responsibility/liability (as Vorce's quotation illustrates).

NOTE: Please excuse my extreme brain freeze here. This story is about Paul Taylor, not Joffrey!
