IRNE's End Brings Disconnect Between Theater Professionals And Critics To A Boiling Point

“Gambardella said he was surprised to learn of the IRNE’s assertion that members had not heard of Chase’s alleged assault until the spring of 2018, when Gambardella posted about it on social media. Soon after, Chase resigned from the IRNEs and members wore black to the annual awards in support of Gambardella, Hoban said. The IRNEs also participated in StageSource’s work to create resources on sexual harassment in performing arts spaces, according to Hoban. Chase did not return a phone call seeking comment.”

Boston Globe: Allegations of sex assault reverberate in theater scene

A freelance theater critic has been blacklisted by area theaters after an actor accused him of sexual assault — a case that was reported to police but not pursued by prosecutors as the critic continued to circulate within Boston’s theater community.

In a lengthy Facebook post in April, actor Evan Gambardella alleged that Alan Chase, a theater blogger who had registered as a sex offender, fondled him during a late-night bus ride in 2012 from New York to Boston.

“He slowly slid his finger toward my crotch and eventually gripped my penis,’’ wrote Gambardella, who at the time was a 20-year-old student at Boston University. “I have never felt so ashamed and helpless in my life. This was my first sexual experience.’’

Chase, 71, did not respond to Globe requests for comment.

Theater News: IRNE Awards @ 22 — The Theater Bug, Renewed

“An IRNE judge, Al Chase, who resigned two weeks before the event, was publicly exposed by Evan Gambardella, an actor now living in New York, who chronicled his abuse by Chase in a Facebook posting. To IRNE’s credit, a statement was issued condemning Chase’s behavior and urging Boston-area theaters to bar him from reviewing future productions…

Speaking for his fellow IRNE judges, Mike Hoban declared that “we support the brave action of Evan Gambardella in coming forward and sharing his trauma in order to shine a light on inappropriate and predatory behavior and the horrific consequences for its victims.”
