Epic Theatre Company Pauses Programming Amid Sexual Assault Allegations Made Against Artistic Director

GoLocalProv has reported that sexual assault allegations are being made against Epic Theatre Company's artistic director Kevin Broccoli. After investigating the claims, Epic Theatre Executive Director Megan Ruggiero, along with staff members Angelique Dina and Lauren Pothier, have all resigned.

Broccoli is currently remaining in his position in order to address the claims.

Broccoli revealed in a statement: "As of now, Epic is essentially frozen. All future projects, even one-off events, are not moving forward...
