In a written statement to The Times, Rudin said he hoped the productions running before the industrywide pandemic shutdown – Mockingbird, Mormon and West Side Story – would reopen. “Other producers will replace me on these shows, and they will have decision making responsibilities that were heretofore mine,” he said. Rudin did not address whether he would continue to benefit financially from the shows.
If WSS does reopen, this might be a good time for Rudin to take Ramasar with him and they can both do their stepping back routine. (This whole thing just adds to the infamous moment in the 60 Minutes piece on WSS where Rudin declared he would not fire Ramasar.) The two may have done different things, but both are equally reprehensible.
