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."
