‘Kinky Boots’ casting director fired for sexual misconduct

Broadway casting director Justin Huff — who worked on “Kinky Boots,” “The Color Purple,” “Newsies” and numerous other shows — has been fired from Telsey + Company following reports of sexual misconduct.

“He was let go last week,” Bernard Telsey, the founder of Telsey + Company, a top casting agency, told Variety. “I was given reports of inappropriate behavior which I took very seriously, and once I was able to get some information, it was very clear he had to leave this office.”

Huff, who lives in Maplewood, N.J., according to his Facebook page, has casting director credits on such TV productions as “NCIS: New Orleans” and “Grease Live!”

Huff’s ouster over allegations of sexual misconduct is the latest in a wave of high-profile dismissals since claims against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
