Broadway Takes Aim at Contested Indiana Law with Petition

       NEW YORK (AP) _ Indiana's new religious-objections law has angered many on Broadway, and some are calling on union members to avoid working in that state.
 
       A Care2 petition started Thursday by playwright and actor Eric Ulloa urges the Actors' Equity Association to avoid performances or work in the state of Indiana following that passage of the state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
 
       The labor union represents more than 50,000 actors and stage managers.
 
       It had over 1,000 signatures by noon.
 
       The Indiana law takes effect July 1. It doesn't specifically mention gays, but opponents say it is designed to protect businesses and individuals who do not want to serve them, such as florists or caterers who might be hired for a same-sex wedding.
