Our circulation of an ACE advertisement earlier today has drawn prompt action from the Musicians Union, which finds that the wages being offered to players in the job offer are less than half the minimum wage. The MU has taken up the matter with the Kings Head Theatre, Islington. ‘The MU will be speaking to them in the strongest terms,‘ it says.
Wrong target. It needs to castigate the ACE for promoting the slave wage jobs.
Meantime, the ‘world famous’ singer whom the musicians are being booked to accompany has been identified as the US tenor Charles Castronovo. World famous?
