Actors’ Equity has hired labor attorney Micah Wissinger to conduct a review of the workplace of “Jagged Little Pill.”
The union hired Wissinger to conduct the investigation after cast member Nora Schell posted a public account of alleged mistreatment. Schell claims the “Jagged Little Pill” stage manager and other members of the management team repeatedly dismissed Schell’s need for medical treatment related to a diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
The “Jagged Little Pill” producers have separately hired law firm Jay Hewlin and The Hewlin Group to investigate the matter. Additionally, the producers said they were launching an external review of the productions’ policies and procedures for its company members.
