Whoa! Scott Rudin was a bullying, abusive and potentially liable assaulter who physically attacked employees and emotionally ripped them to shreds.
Bright Sheng showed his students an Academy Award-nominated film of a wildly-praised production of a canonical play by the man considered to be the greatest writer in the history of the English language starring the man who was regarded by many as the greatest English-speaking actor of his age. (All of these claims are subjective and open to discussion.)
Curious and clueless as it was to show the Olivier Othello to a class of 20-somethings in this day and age, it's not the same thing as Scott Rudin throwing furniture at people in his employ.
