In February, a committee of Equity and Broadway League members came to a split decision over a grievance filed against Piven by the play's producers. That led the two parties to arbitration. In a statement, an Equity spokesperson said, "The decision acknowledges that Mr. Piven did not breach his individual employment contract nor did he breach the Equity-League collective bargaining contract."
Piven told the New York Times in an interview, "I'm just a theater actor who got sick, and was physically incapable of finishing my run. And now I can put this behind me and move on. And I'm stronger than I've ever been."
