Scott Rudin’s Decades Of Power And Damage On Broadway And In Hollywood

At the crux of the matter, there are hints at rottenness that extends far beyond Rudin and his protegés: “Many wondered how artists who consider themselves politically enlightened could be so eager to work with Mr. Rudin, knowing how badly he treated his employees. ‘People are acting like the industry is changing, but the fact that someone like Scott is still in power makes me doubtful of that,’ said Josh Arnon, 25, who worked at Mr. Rudin’s office from October 2018 to August 2019. ‘It’s crazy ...

Why Did Scott Rudin Step Back From Broadway? Maybe Not Just Because He’d Seen The Error Of His Ways

The key seems to have been Rudin’s high-profile, high-stakes production of The Music Man, set to start previews in December. While some of the key people involved in the revival reportedly showed “apathy” about the allegations of Rudin’s appalling office behavior, the two stars did not: Hugh Jackman told others he was “very concerned” but did not give an ultimatum, while Sutton Foster said publicly that she would go if he did not. – The Hollywood Reporter

Scott Rudin’s Apology Is Not Enough

Not great: “Broadway producers I spoke to told me that Rudin seems to be sincere about stepping away from the day-to-day running of his megahits, The Book of Mormon and To Kill a Mockingbird, but no one seems to think he’ll be relinquishing his financial stakes. When Broadway resumes, so will his revenue streams.” What can Broadway, and Hollywood, do? – Los Angeles Times

Scott Rudin’s Abusive Behavior Was An Open Secret

Why did the media not come out and treat it as the truly awful (and unacceptable) fact that it was? “Unlike past stories, The Hollywood Reporter’s offers, for the first time in Rudin’s almost 40 years as a producer, an unromanticized affirmation of the seemingly endless anecdotes about him as a manager. It details his alleged misbehavior as well as his influence, which has arguably made the industry and the journalists who report on it more likely to accept workplace aggression as a condition o...

Producer Scott Rudin, “Monster” Boss

Even as others have been canceled or have dialed back their aggression, Rudin’s behavior has continued unabated, leaving a trail of splintered objects and traumatized employees in his path. – The Hollywood Reporter

Why Did The Tony Awards Suddenly Rule '1984' Ineligible?

Well, we know why, but we don't know why the show did what it did in the first place: "The production, whose lead producer is Scott Rudin, refused to provide tickets for one of the Tony nominators, Jose Antonio Vargas, and as a result, Tony officials pulled 1984’s eligibility. (Broadway sources, speaking on background because […]
