A Broadway musical about Kathleen Battle? It’s a fraudmain
A Broadway entrepreneur Roland Scahill has been arrested for defrauding investors of $165,000 for a proposed musical about the life of the combustible opera singer, Kathleen Battle.
In a scheme worthy of Bialistok and Bloom, he told investors he owned the rights to Battle’s life story and had signed a Hollywood star, Lupita Nyong’o, to play her on stage and film.
He was last seen leaving the dock in cuffs.
