Female colleagues on “The Rocky Horror Show” in 2014 have made complaints. Two, Erika Heynatz and Angela Scundi, have taken their complaints to the police in Victoria state.

McLachlan is accused of pressing against co-stars on stage, exposing himself, touching their genitals and groping their breasts. Actresses report him inviting them into his dressing room, where he stripped naked, and also of making inappropriate visits to women’s changing rooms.

Christie Whelan Browne alleges that, during a performance of the 2014 show, McLachlan pulled aside her underwear and kissed her buttocks.

In response to the accusations, the paper carried McLachlan’s strong denials. “These allegations are all made up,” he said in an emailed response. “They seem to be simple inventions, perhaps made for financial reasons, perhaps to gain notoriety.”
