Woody Allen heckled about sexual abuse allegations at New York's Brooks Atkinson Theatre (Report)

By Gina DiFalco,

In light of his estranged daughter’s abuse allegations coming to the surface again, Woody Allen reportedly received a poor reception at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

While Allen was there with his wife, Soon-Yi, and their daughters, Bechet and Manzie. The famed writer-director got heckled by onlookers.

An audience member also attending After Midnight yelled “I think he did it!” according to Page Six.

When the show was over, Allen and his family tried to make their way out quickly but a source said, “A 60-something woman loudly exclaimed to her friend, ‘I think he did it!’ as Woody and his family scooted out. A protective Soon-Yi shot her a dirty look. Woody seemed unfazed.”

Since adopted daughter Dylan Farrow’s New York Times piece detailing her account of what had happened to her as a child, Allen has spoken out to say his ex, Mia Farrow, orchestrated all of it.

"It is tragic that after 20 years a story engineered by a vengeful lover resurfaces even though it was fully vetted and rejected by independent authorities. The one to blame for Dylan's distress is neither Dylan nor Woody Allen,” said his lawyer.

Allen also responded with an op-ed in the New York Times.
