Listen: Statement on “This Week on Broadway” Review, Stars Announced for “MFL” Tour, Jodi Benson Comments on “Mermaid” Casting!
“Today on Broadway” is a daily, Monday through Friday, podcast hitting the top theatre headlines of the day.
Earlier this week in an episode of This Week on Broadway, Peter Filichia made a comment about a performer’s physical appearance that was not in line with our values as a company. We pride ourselves on giving a voice to many in the industry, and failed to make sure that everyone on our team was in line with our editorial standards.
Comments like this that belittle others are unacceptable, and we sincerely apologize to the actor involved and the entire company of Camp Morning Wood. We will be going over our editorial and review standards with all of our contributors over the course of this week. We’re sorry that we failed you, and we are dedicated to doing better in the future.
