Hey – This is six-time Tony Award Winner, William Ivey Long – he’s a mentor and abuser of mine from back in my past:

Recently, I teamed up with Buzzfeed’s Adam Vary. We worked all summer on crafting a case against him involving abuse and sexual harassment I suffered in the summer of 1996. Since then, people keep contacting me with more and more documented proof of William’s impropriety, gas lightings, and assaults.

Adam is a compassionate journalist who takes his job extremely seriously. We vetted all these allegations for months before approaching Long’s lawyers. They did little more than drag their feet for ten days, then issue a categoric denial.

That simply won’t do.

If you have any information on William’s decades of systemic abuse, please email piefolk@gmail.com.

Stay safe!

  1. Just found your blog and I love it – I wish lived in New York so I could come see you perform. I’d also offer to help with your problem not having enough sex, but I’m 6’2″ so I’m over the height your doctor recommended.

  3. Looking at your pretty face reminds of why nature has used so many times in the course of of my lifetime. FWIW, all the individuals were wonderful people.
