• Box Out Bullying 09/25/2017  9:20pm

    We were hired by Jeremy Rubinstein owner/writer/producer/director/former lead actor, of the national Anti Bullying Production “Box Out Bullying. We tour the country teaching elementary kids about bullying prevention. Good idea, right!

    Well we’re very sad to say Jeremy Rubemstein and the rest of the Box Out productions are Fucking Bullies!

    They have threatened to Blackball us from the industry and they have threatened to sue us, because we quit the production after dealing with dangerous situations, lies and micromanagement for a month.

    Day three of rehearsal: Jeremy Rubinstein began offering his cast “Uppers” from his personal prescription. He said "it would help us get through the rehearsal process.”

    We were promised a new and bigger van after the 1st week of shows. Instead we were forced to take a 10 year old car on a national tour. It broke down with a blown head gasket week 2. We almost got in a wreck on the freeway when the engine blew because we lost breaks and steering.

    Luckily one of us is a bad ass and was able to save lives and property. Yet the production team never asked if we were ok and instead was more worried about why the company phone was off and where it was.

    The next day we had to rent a van to make it to our next show 3 hours away. We had to pay for a Uber to get to the rental place. Box Out Bullying refuses to reimburse us for this costs.

    We were promised separate rooms: Instead we were made to pay for our own rooms. Which we have yet to be reimbursed for.

    We were given an extra week of rehearsal. Production attempted to only pay one of us for the extra time.

    Jeremy Rubenstein made us late to a show when he was pulled over and ticketed in a school zone. He also almost wrecked the car on the free way after running over a cat. We decided he was no longer allowed to drive.

    We both told Jeremy we wanted to quit the show. But he made more promises and said things would get better, so we said we would stay on. Then Jeremy secretly replaced one of us, kicking the other off the tour with no warning. And followed it up with a “law suit” shortly thereafter we both were done with the show.

    Yet Jeremy kept emailing us and those emails soon turned to threats of blackballing and telling casting directors.

    If after all you’ve read you’ve not gotten the hint. Stay away from Box Out Bullying. These guys are the most unprofessional group of people we’ve ever encountered. They still refuse to pay us in full or to reimburse expenses paid by us that were accrued by them.


    Fucking bump that shit

    They have not gotten through the alt list yet, so no EMC and no non-eq have been seen.

    I know Norweigan Cruise Lines is pretty popular, but they seem to be very focused on how attractive their performers are...

    I got an audition for the Divas/Shirley. I am petite (5'1) and heavyset/thick. Anyone know if this will be an issue for them? Am I wasting my time? It seems like these characters (especially the Divas) might be more flexible in their looks.

  • Phantom 09/26/2017  8:38am

    There is a non-equity list started, with 3 names as of 8:50am.
    Any clues as to whether they might see non-equ today?

    Ladywholunches 09/26/2017  9:51am

    Accompanist just got here. Stuff like this is such a nightmare for the EMC who jumped through every hoop to be here at the ass crack of dawn. Just sayin'

    VeryBariBaritone 09/26/2017  10:10am

    How many EMC signed up on the list?

    313 09/26/2017  10:23am

    16. 1 Called I believe.

    VeryBariBaritone 09/26/2017  10:24am

    Confirming only one EMC called.

    They’re 20 minutes behind and won’t be calling any more EMC until they catch up.

    VorpalDormouse 09/26/2017  10:33am

    Noneq and emc told they prob wont get to them until after lunch. Not an official statement, but the monitor's advice.

    Hey all,
    Any update on lists coming back from lunch? How many EMC called? Thanks!

    thetallguy 09/26/2017  1:52pm

    @Huzzah there is one featured dancer. The rest of the ensemble are operatic singers.

    Laladreams 09/26/2017  1:57pm

    So the monitor clearly miscalculated and emc and noneq were called. Up to 8 on noneq.

    Only trust official statements from the casting team, people.
