Scott Rudin film stars Music Scott Rudin

Behind Scott Rudin's Move to "Step Back" From Broadway Productions

Over the past week, a half dozen people involved with Broadway's The Music Man converged on multiple conference calls to discuss Scott Rudin's involvement in the upcoming play in light of abuse allegations made against the uber-producer in a THR cover story 10 days ago.

A source familiar with the calls says Music Man star Hugh Jackman was “very concerned” about the claims, which included on-the-record depictions of physical abuse and “what it would look like moving forward” with Rudin in a visible role.

The source says that Jackman never made any ultimatums or threatened to leave the show, which is poised to kick off Broadway's return after a debilitating shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
