Scott Rudin will resign from the Broadway League.
The producer revealed his resignation from the national trade association as well as apologized for his behavior in a statement to the New York Times on Saturday.
“I know apologizing is not, by any means, enough,” Rudin told the Times. “In stepping back, I intend to work on my issues and do so fully aware that many will feel that this is too little and too late.”
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed Rudin’s resignation with a Broadway League rep.
The producer’s statements come in the wake of The Hollywood Reporter‘s April 7 cover story in which ex-staffers spoke on the record to share allegations of abusive and aggressive behavior by Rudin over a number of years.
Rudin addressed the claims by issuing a statement for The Washington Post noting that he plans to “step back” from Broadway productions in the wake of the allegations. “Much has been written about my history of troubling interactions with colleagues, and I am profoundly sorry for the pain my behavior caused to individuals, directly and indirectly,” wrote Rudin. “After a period of reflection, I’ve made the decision to step back from active participation on our Broadway productions, effective immediately.”
