"The most important voice we needed to hear from was Scott Rudin, he has now spoken up and stepped away from ‘The Music Man.’ I hope and pray this is a journey of healing for all the victims and the community," Jackman’s statement continued.

"We are currently rebuilding the ‘Music Man’ team and are aspiring to create an environment that is not only safe, but ensures that everyone is seen, heard and valued. This is something that is and has always been very important to me," the Tony winner concluded.

Earlier this month, the Hollywood Reporter published a damning report on Rudin, detailing myriad claims of workplace abuse that including smashing a computer console on an assistant’s hand and hurling a baked potato at another.
