Does that matter? Whether or not this happens in other industries (and it almost certainly does), it happens in *our* industry. Aside from the throwing, I have experienced everything in this article with another producer at a different theater, down to the gaslighting and the regularly occurring fight-or-flight response when being yelled at for simply doing my job, and sometimes i've been yelled at specifically because I put myself in the line of fire in order to protect someone else from being yelled at or publicly humiliated.

That has to change, and audiences need to know what they are supporting when they pay their $150 for a Broadway ticket.

In terms of the world beyond Hollywood/Broadway, it is also due for a reckoning. The culture of bullying and violence needs to end, but those of us who work in theater can only answer it in our realm, because that is where we have some small amount of power. Maybe.
