The death of Broadway star and choreograph Liam Scarlett sent waves throughout the community. But new reports suggest that his death (also a suicide) may have been against the backdrop of allegations of sexual grooming and unwanted contact by others.
The initial allegations against Scarlett first appeared in 2018. By 2019, productions on shows he was in all but had dried up and nobody wanted to work with him. An equally eye-popping report in The Daily Mail shows that in the months after his suicide producers apparently struggled to fill shows out of fear of having worked with him in the past.
Scott had notoriously been accused of sending and asking his colleagues for sexual photos; touching backsides, and making unwanted passes at people that were not warranted.
