I don't like Trump at all, but harrasing people just because they like him is just wrong...😤
They weren't being harassed because they like Trump. They were being harassed because the play was speaking out again left-wing media.

Apparently they are shopping for a new venue. The playwright is saying the theater just used that tweet as an excuse to cancel the show, that they never actually investigated the threat or discussed security with him. *shrugs*

Sounds like the theather wanted to get out of the contract they had with the playwright if they never actually investigated the threat.
And it doesnts matter what side you on something like that is wrong .

True if the theatre didn't want to do it they shouldn't have agreed to it in the first place and you shouldn't threaten people.

The last group of folks that got together and said, "We hate this group" and then proceeded to fill movies with like-mind actors, get rid of anyone who didn't fall in line, made movies about how bad the people they hated were, made disparaging cartoons about them, discussed their "privledge" and said they didn't deserve it...they went on to say that the group they hated shouldn't be allowed to work with them.

Then they said that that group shouldn't be allowed to work at all. Then they said that members of that group couldn't live around them. Then they said that members of that group couldn't live.

And they proceeded to figure out how to kill them as quickly as possible. They almost wiped those folks off the face of the planet.

When you dehumanize others by referring to them as numbers...when you allow organizations like the New York Times to inform you AFTER they've proven that they hire (and continue to employ!) vile, vicious racists...when you are on the side of the gangs who dress in black hoods to throw urine/feces on paralyzed vets and violently beat random strangers...you're not fighting the Nazis. You are the Nazis.

It starts with allowing a little. Just some unkind words.

Because the holocaust happened in baby steps. And they started then EXACTLY as they're behaving now.

Nobody rebelled because it happened so slowly, over such a long time. At first, it was just some people saying horrible things and some isolated violence.

You MUST stand up against racism and anti-semitism. Speak against it every time you hear it.

It is silence that allows the evil to take root.

What was said of the tweet, as in #1 by Spanky might be a threat against the theatre. But I fail to see how when, they would, lock the doors and set the theatre on fire constitutes an actual death threat.
No people are actually threatened,
it does not say the actors should be in the theatre nor that there should be an audience in the theatre.

It sounds to me that the owners of the theatre wanted out of the contract so they sent the tweet,
has anyone thought of the actors themselves trying to get their names in the papers?
