  • Karen Olivo has elected to not return to Broadway when the theaters fully reopen, citing the industry's silence of THR's April 7 article covering producer Scott Rudin's history of violently abusive and vindictive behavior. As of April 17 Rudin has issued an apology and announcement he is stepping back from active participation in theatrical endeavors ... for now. The sincerity of this statement is, at my most generous, fucking dubious. Plus he hasn't stepped back from any of his Hollywood projects, and no one here actually thinks that he limited his abuse of staff to one coast.
  • The long-running Perfect Crime resumed performances on April 18.
