  1. I have a wardrobe fitting at 3:00 tomorrow in Sun Valley or I would be there with my union brothers and sisters standing against this terrible plan and the way our union is approaching the whole situation. Today’s letter from Equity is so out of line and repugnant, it calls for the removal of current Equity leadership. Our own union should not be trying to bully us into conformity that will hurt theatre in Los Angeles.
