In the wake of renewed claims of child sexual abuse against Woody Allen by Mia Farrow, adopted daughter Dylan, and son Ronan, Broadway producers of a musical version of Allen’s Bullets Over Broadway have told the press that Allen will not be present for the show’s media “sneak peek rehearsal” on Thursday, the New York Daily News reported today (Wednesday). Moreover, it said, print media outlets have been uninvited to the media day. The newspaper said that it had received a notice that the producers “have now had to significantly reduce the number of people the room can comfortably accommodate.” Television crews will be on hand, but, the Daily News commented, “Whether the TV crews who are getting access will ask tough questions of the stars … is anyone’s guess. … Television air time can be expected to limit any in-depth exchanges.” The newspaper indicated that producers are concerned about how the latest round of charges against Allen will affect ticket sales for the big-budget show. Allen has repeatedly denied the charges.
