my comment was regarding playing the same part night after night  and Craig has done it over quite a few years now.... no excuses though  as young women in fear of losing their job   its not good at all...

perhaps they think they are grown women and could fight them off if they didnt like the attention....

I do not have a clue what goes through the mind of a bloke who does this......they seem to be intelligent people wouldnt they know putting ones hands on another persons private parts is not on???>.doesnt common decency tell them that?

Is this a case where countless women would be throwing themselves at him and he lost all perspective of which ones were not making the offer?

but so far its only those who have been on stage with him..... it must be a hell of a thing to investigate  ..I mean not many do that sort of stuff for others to see...


how do you tell who is telling the truth....I mean  now they are saying it was common knowledge about his behavior and everyone talked about it?????>.


so how come the production company claim they had no idea????....

This is just another example of people in the workforce being arseholes.

They can be male or female, its not always about sex its about power.

AND  in all cases there are always the bystanders that see whats going on know its wrong and say nothing.

Haven't seen what he's actually accused of - putting hands on private parts.... Dr Frank N furter would do that.... without a second thought....

Just saying.... I'll wait for the evidence...... and the proof... two different things....

I note that the Geoffrey Rush thing has gone quiet.... why is that?  Fifteen minutes of fame now over?

I can never forget Fairely Arrow..... mate.. we fairly arrowed out of there, let me tell you!

Production company issues apology over Craig McLachlan allegations

One of the new cast members who has come forward said McLachlan had a blazing row with the stage managers during the show and was late back on stage for his part: "So he came on the wrong way, at the wrong time, very fast and very aggressively and ran into me."

The cast member was injured and had to take time off work and was expecting an apology from McLachlan.

It never came.

Instead McLachlan's behaviour escalated. He was hurting his fellow cast members during the show, grabbing them by the arm or the face.

The cast member went to a female manager to report feeling unsafe and threatened on stage, and that no one was taking any action to protect them from McLachlan. The manager "was passive, showed no reaction and then said, 'well, what do you want me to do?'"



More allegations here....

If true, he sounds like an arsewipe. I'd suggest, if true, he need his face grabbed, his legs taken from under him, a knee in the sternum and one finger moved from pinching his face and stuffed in his eye with the words, "you do that again and the only acting job you will get is as a cyclops or a pirate."

Worksafe in each state may be taking a look at the allegations.

The theatre company may have to show how they are providing a safe workplace.
On the face of it they have failed.

see how the wording keeps changing...

perhaps for some people it isnt sexual harassment unless it gets down to the nitty gritty......

to me someone to claim he kissed her uninvited in 2004

seems to make the seriousness of the case a bit muddy thats all..

Craig McLachlan would surely be aquascoot's favourite actor.

He has all the "qualities" horse boy admires.

Shocked Shocked Shocked


None of these is an allegation of sexual misconduct..... why the hue and cry over 'power relationships' and such...

This one is growing smellier by the minute..... are thespians all wilting violets these days more concerned about their 'rights' and 'feelings' than doing their job?

I'm off to see the opening night of Mother on 25th Jan - haven't said Hi to Noni for years..... but she'll walk the walk.... guaranteed.

"You start off playing yourself, then someone's mother, and finally someone's grand-mother....." ... some well-known actress once said that to that effect anyway.  And I dont use silly words like act-or to describe actors and actresses, either... Queensland.. oops Sovereignsland be damned.....

Ban Little Red Riding Hood - that wolf wanted to eat her while dressed as her grannie but a noble working man with a long hard axe stuffed the wolf big time and took the little girl under his arm ..... and Snow White must be banned because the sleeping lass didn't sign a paper saying 'Kiss Me To Wake Me Up' - and that after living with seven midgets at the same time (did Centrelink know?) .... Sleeping Beauty, well, where can I start!!  Wicked Steppie slips her the poisoned apple, she drops off the attraction to boys scale for years, and finally realises when kissed without permission that she likes Princes after all...  Roll Eyes

Dr Frank N Furter is pretty gay sado-mas, and maybe he got the little bit of rough play wrong... it can happen after years doing the same role..... it's a Rocky road.........  and displays of temper could equally be in character and be part of establishing the pecking order on-stage - which Frank frankly dominates...

Nowadays ANY complaint involving a sheila is somehow sex-based regardless of facts... that is what this nation has come to under the ridiculous tenets of 'feminism' .. the easiest way to 'power' in a relationship for a woman is to use sex... we all know that and knew it for years...

Well said, Phil.

These entitlement thieves must be put in their place as a lesson to others who aspire to 'boss' positions over others.


Does that equally apply to women aspiring to "boss" positions?

You wankers.


Do you have some accusations you want to make otherwise we are talking about reality here???

Huh Huh Huh


Further to the accusation that you're a wanker?

Or are you suggesting women don't & can't aspire to boss positions?

You wouldn't know reality until it bit you on the backside.
