Sutton Foster Vowed to Quit Broadway's 'Music Man' if Producer Scott Rudin Didn't Step Down

Sutton Foster Vowed to Quit Broadway's 'Music Man' if Producer Scott Rudin Didn't Step Down

Sutton Foster deserves a standing ovation for the stand she took against producer Scott Rudin!

The two-time Tony-winning actress is set to star alongside Hugh Jackman in the upcoming Broadway revival of The Music Man, which was to be produced by Rudin.

After the recent allegations of abusive workplace behavior were revealed, Sutton reportedly told the rest of the producing team that she would leave the production if he remained on the team, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The outlet says that Hugh was “very concerned” about the claims, though he reportedly did not make any ultimatums in the way Sutton did. He did “express his position that something needed to be done.”

Rudin announced on Saturday morning (April 17) that he will “step away” from the Broadway productions that he was working on, effective immediately. His statement only said that he was stepping away from “active participation,” so it’s likely that he still has a financial stake in the show.

Another Tony-winning actress has also taken a stand against Rudin and the industry’s non-response to the allegations.
