Death of a Salesman:
Kathryn said that the unproven events had occurred on 1984 Broadway production of Death of a Salesman.
She said that Hoffman would regularly grope her. The actor would grab her breast and before a photograph was taken, he removes his hand.
One fine night, Hoffman exposed her body to the stage crew. She said that he suddenly grabs the bottom slip and pulls it up over her head, by exposing breasts and body to the crew by covering her face.
Kathryn added night after night she went home and cried. She withdrew and got depressed. She did not have good interpersonal relationships with the cast.
She is considering reporting him to the actor’s equity. But she was warned by some respected theatre professionals that if she did, she would probably lose my job and because he was such a powerful star.
The paper said that they had not witnessed the unproven misconduct.
