Rudin is the winner of 17 Tony Awards and he has received award nominations almost every year for the past two decades.

Rudin added: “After a period of reflection, I have made the decision to no longer actively participate in our Broadway productions, effective immediately. My roles will be filled by other members of the Broadway community and, in a number of cases, by the list of participants already present on these shows.
