It’s true – if you don’t play nice in the Fort, the kids will kick you out. The fallout from our behind-the-scenes, exclusive video of Jeremy’s Fort director Adam Cross has been huge. Huge as in Theater Burn has confirmed that Cross is no longer directing Jeremy’s Fort.
Let’s bring you up to speed. Our Diana Rioux sat down with Cross and the new artistic director of Threshold Arts, Theresa Amesworth, for a chat on Theater Burn’s Behind Broadway. Following that interview, Cross spoke very candidly about Amesworth. With comments like calling Amesworth a “doorstop,” Cross was slinging more arrows than a Hunger Games trailer. We were even more surprised when Amesworth called us after seeing the video at TheaterBurn.com.
“First, I’d like to thank you for prominently displaying our website in the video,” remarked the ever monotone Amesworth. “And second, thank you for exposing that piece of trash to the world. I can assure you that action has been taken.” And just like that, Adam Cross is unemployed.
Sources inside the production say another director has already been hired. Our money is on director Linda Avery, who recently directed the successful Iron Dog production in Boston. She’s a great fit for the show. The show was already behind in rehearsals with the opening date coming soon.
Not surprisingly, Cross was unavailable for comment. In the future he may stick more closely to some of the cardinal rules of show business – be pleasant to work with, never burn bridges, and most importantly – don’t talk trash without knowing who’s listening.
