Megan Mullally Has Had Enough!

| Filed under: Broadway Babies

So she's walking out!

Megan Mullally is leaving the Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway proudction of Lips Together, Teeth Apart because director Joe Mantello is kind of a jerk!

Supposedly Mantello is known to be pretty confrontational with the actors of his hit productions, so Mullally is leaving the show that also stars Patton Oswalt and Lili Taylor. The play is about two couples who "celebrate the Fourth of July and face uncertain futures."

The play was set to open on April 9, but we wonder if Megan's departure will set things back at all?

Either way she was going to be a big draw — it can't be good for the show that she's leaving!

    If she doesn't need the money then she shouldnt take the abuse. I don't care who the person is or who they think they are no one has the right to treat others badly.

    No one from Wicked (Menzel/Chenoweth) or 9to5 (Parton/Janney) or Assassins (A whole boat-load of people including NPH) or Three Days of Rain (Julia freaking Roberts) has seemed to have had a problem with him in the past. I've heard he's known for being very exacting but professional.

    Actually, the problem was with another member of the production.
    The Roundabout has declared her in breach of her contract, may be called before an Equity panel and face fines or even a ban from the union.
    Financial responsibility could not only include the lost rehearsal time, but all the promotional materials that already have her name and image on them.
    Hope it was worth it, she could have had a nice career on Broadway.

    I was looking forward to seeing Megan in this show and expecting a Tony nomination. It must have been really really bad for her to walk. I'm sure it wasn't just Joe… she's done with him in a few weeks, it has to be a a cast member because she doesn't want to spend the next 6 months with them. It is very possible she may return.. that's what the buzz is…

    Joe Montello is a complete hack. His direction is universally boring and he's had success because he's lucked into really good scripts with top talent. Have no idea why Bway producers hire him. Remember, "What's Wrong With This Picture"?? Worst. Broadway. Show. EVER. He's a no talent and deserves a flop once in a while.
