Signature Theatre Denied Allegations of Sexual Assault Against Co-Founder Eric Schaeffer
BroadwayWorld reported that Signature Theatre co-founder Eric Schaeffer has stepped down amid allegations of sexual assault.
The allegations were made publicly on social media on Sunday from actor Thomas Keegan who said that Schaeffer grabbed his genitals repeatedly during an awards show in 2018.
The Washington post reported that a two-month investigation in 2018 by a lawyer hired by Signature, Linda Hitt Thatcher, concluded the accusations were "not credible," and Schaeffer was returned to his duties.
