Performers and stage managers were released from agreements they signed to work on four shows that were produced by Scott Rudin after their union, Actors' Equity, filed complaints.
The productions impacted include 'To Kill a Mockingbird,' 'West Side Story,' 'The Iceman Cometh' and 'The Lehman Trilogy,' with the nondisclosure agreement release effective immediately.
Praises for the actor's body ignores the fact that he had every right to feel safe while he was at work — and someone violated that.
Video of a naked Jesse Williams captured onstage in a shower scene from a Broadway play has been posted online, prompting an outcry from the producers and the union that represents actors and stage managers.
"We condemn in the strongest possible terms the creation and distribution of photographs and videos of our members during a nude scene," said Kate Shindle, president of Actors' Equity Association
Actors’ Equity is blasting an audience member who secretly videotaped Jesse Williams’ nude scene while performing in Take Me Out at the Second Stage Theater in NYC and then released it on Twitter.
Actors’ Equity has reached a new agreement with the Michigan regional theater founded in 1991 by actor Jeff Daniels that recently saw the resignation of its longtime artistic director Guy Sanville following harassment and bullying accusations.
Actors’ Equity has hired labor attorney Micah Wissinger to conduct a review of the workplace of “Jagged Little Pill.”
Wissinger’s practice includes representing unions and individuals in all aspects of labor and employment law, including complex arbitration, litigation and more.
Actors’ Equity has joined several other unions in calling for the resignation of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
