The industry has asked the union to waive the one-week notice , said Emanuel Azenberg
, a producer of Stones , referring to the Actors' Equity rule requiring shows to give performers at least one week's notice before ending their runs.If they do , `Stones' is definitely closed ; if they don't , it will end by Sunday..
A union decision on the waiver was expected Tuesday.

New York is the mecca for the theater , and the city was threatened in a huge way , Azenberg
said.It is quite conceivable we could do less business this week than we did last week.At least for three or four days , people who were stuck in New York could go to the theater.Now those people have left town..
