Karen Olivo leaving Broadway’s ‘Moulin Rouge’

Olivo made the statement on Instagram Wednesday, “For all of ya’ll who don’t hear me, the silence about Scott Rudin — unacceptable. Unacceptable. That’s the easy one, ya’ll. That’s a monster. That should be a no-brainer.”
While Rudin is not a manufacturer on “Moulin Rouge,” a few of his other Broadway productions consist of “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Book of Mormon.” The news of Olivo’s exit follows a report recently by The Hollywood Press reporter relating to Rudin’s declared “volcanic temper” by a minimum of a lots previous staff members, a few of whom implicated Rudin of physical abuse that consisted of smashing a computer system screen on an employee’s hand.

Through a representative, Rudin decreased to discuss any of the accusations in the THR report. CNN has actually connected to Rudin’s agents for remark.

“Moulin Rouge!” manufacturers released a declaration, which was acquired by CNN, in action to Olivo’s statement.

“‘Moulin Rouge! The Musical’ is forever indebted to Karen Olivo’s artistry, passion, and craft in creating the role of Satine on stage,” their declaration checked out. “We applaud and support Karen’s advocacy work to create a safe, diverse, and equitable theater industry for all. Karen has been an indelible influence on our show from its beginning, and words cannot properly express our gratitude. We wish Karen great success, and above all, love.”
