Re: “Curtains for Utah Repertory Theater Co.

Ryon Sharrett should not be glamorized, looked at as a hero, or a martyr. Here is a post taken directly from the "Utah Rep Boycott Reasons" group. It has since been confirmed by others of the American Psycho cast. This writer remains anonymous:

"I’ve debated coming forward directly, but I feel like a lot of my cast would turn on me and we’ve been through so much. But I think it’s important to be shared in this narrative that Ryon is no hero no martyr. And although I don’t condone Utah Rep or Johnny or many of the people involved with American Psycho, Ryon was part of the problem. And it’s extremely hypocritical of him to call out sexual harassment when he was the biggest abuser of them all. He constantly would be giving everyone massages in the cast and cuddling and touching other cast members. He would do it in a way that he was acting like he was comforting cast members or relieving stress. Multiple times I would move away or tell him I didn’t want to be caressed or touched but he would ignore that. When I saw him around backstage, I would intentionally make myself busy or go to the girls dressing room. He would constantly brag about his open relationship and how he had a fiancée and a girlfriend and how they would both have to approve if he was to have sex with someone else and indicating to me that he wanted me to get their permission or something. The Halloween night at the club, he made out with multiple cast members and Johnny and was bragging about it the next day. To say he felt manipulated or whatever is bullshit. Several other female members of the cast also felt uncomfortable with him around. On the Sunday after we were suppose to open and we had our cast meeting several other girls expressed his level of intimacy being inappropriate and one of the girls said publicly that he was always touching her and it was like he was trying to stick his dick in me. Yes Utah Rep should close. Yes American Psycho was a shit show and unsafe. But Ryon was a part of the problem and I would warn others to stay far away from him as his cunning and manipulative ways to play on your emotions and make you feel like it’s ok for him to touch you and massage or get you into one of his open relationships as one of his girlfriends. Please appreciate my need to be anonymous, but many of the other cast members would also express this. And if the goal is to have transparency and to call out inappropriate behavior in the theater, Ryon was the one I felt most violated by in the entire show. Please share this and I know other cast members will come forward as well."

Re: “Curtains for Utah Repertory Theater Co.

With only one lengthy comment so far, that comment carries more weight than it should. Ryon is no saint -- he readily admits that. But the reading audience should be aware that on the "Utah Rep Boycott Reasons Facebook page, this is the only major set of negative statements about Ryon I saw, amidst HUNDREDS of statements naming serious, dangerous, abusive, and illegal activities initiated or caused by Utah Rep's Johnny Hebda, JC Carter, their cruel choreographer, and others in positions of leadership who saw what was happening and did nothing.

What made me shudder was reading the simple words of one actress, a wonderful experienced actress who has, over the last decade, played some of the best roles in theatre -- magnificently. She spoke of a Utah Rep show that she was in, which I'd seen multiple times because of the great cast (with an obvious exception), saying it had been "a nightmare for me." That is not what theatre is ever supposed to be!

The 2nd biggest problem (after the dangerous, soul-wrenching abuse) is that age-old saying: "Be nice to people on your way up because you'll meet them on your way down." Most people would assume that refers to life in general. But no. The statement came from Wilson Mizner (whose occupation in Wikipedia is listed as "writer, entrepreneur, con man"), and it specifically applies to people in theatre and film. And this concept has always gotten in the way of speaking up.

I suggest readers look for the fuller story coming out.

Re: “More than Heroes and Villains

Christopher Ketcham worked hard to get Donald Trump elected president. (Just look it up.) And then he complains about Trump's obviously bad conservation policies. What a joke. This book review is correct, in his book "This Land" Ketcham reduces important issues to cartoonish nonsense.

Why is Brian Ertz defending Christopher Ketcham so vehemently? Gotta be some sort of social connection, one could argue. (Look it up.)

Thank you Salt Lake City Weekly for publishing this level-headed book review by Carl Segerstrom.

Re: “Ghosts of Venues Past

Burts died because the owners were crooks. The bartenders had to buy beer at the 7/11 just to keep up with drinks some nights. Local bands played for free and the bartenders had to buy them beer to play. The pipes in the basement were broken so we pumped sewage into the streets after closing some nights. Burts stayed alive for as long as it did because the bartenders and regulars kept it open.

Re: “'The State of Utah is Truly, Truly Exceptional'

I have been suffering from #herpes virus for over 7 years now, it was really hard on me and heartbreaking for me because the symptoms were very terrible and painful, i search for cure, went to different hospital but still no hope until a friend of mine introduce me to the great doctor onokun from west Africa who helped her with some spiritual problem she was having then, i took the chance to contact the herbal doctor, he assured me that he will prepare his herbal medicine and deliver it to me through the ups delivery service and I will receive my package under 3 to 4 days, he said I will take the herbal medicine for 21 days following the prescription and food diets which will be listed to me, i listened to everything he told me and purchased the herbal medicine having the fear that i might loose my money but to God everything went well, in a month time after some spiritual consultation which he did with his oracle, i went to the hospital for check up and the medical doctor  confirmed it several times negative that there is no trace or sign of #herpes virus in my body, with happiness in my heart I give God all the thanks for leading me to this genuine doctor onokun, I and my family will keep on testifying for people to know the good he has done for me. for more information on how to reach the great doctor onokun visit his Instagram page @dronokun or  contact him on email: doctoronokun@gmail.com , you can also communicate better with him on whats app:+2349039463501.

DV8 was so great, watching from the balcony, down on the main floor or basement. All epic. Saw 7 Seconds, Youth Brigade (LA), Henry Rollins (spoken word), Bouncing Souls in 1995. Great downtown SLC memories.

Re: “Utahns' Avoidance Coming to an End

That is a perfect opinion piece! The Republicans in Utah hide their head in the sand when it comes to Trump. They are all about party vs Country. His moral intelligence, his spread of lies and hate and divisiveness to and of this country is repulsive! With comments such as Giorno's, it proves the common thread of Utah's Republican are one off from normalcy.
