Producer Scott Rudin Says He’ll ‘Step Back’ from Broadway After Allegations of Workplace Abuse

Scott Rudin, a producer of both movies and Broadway shows, says he will “step back” from his theatrical productions after he was accused of workplace abuse.

The 62-year-old producer is one of just 16 people who have completed the EGOT feat – winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.

Rudin is the winner of 17 Tony Awards and he has received nominations at the awards show nearly every year for the past two decades. Many people in the Broadway community have been calling for action to be taken against him and Tony winner Karen Olivo even decided to quit her musical Moulin Rouge due to the industry’s non-response to the allegations.

Now, Rudin is apologizing for his behavior and saying he’ll step back from Broadway.
