Arvada Center actor: ‘George H.W. Bush groped me,’ too

The claim by Jordana Grolnick of Longmont has been confirmed by an official, and an apology has been issued

Jordana Grolnick, who was raised in Longmont and just played Maggie in the Arvada Center’s production of A Chorus Line, today became the second woman to come forward and allege that former President George H.W. Bush groped her. Her claim has been confirmed by Bush spokesperson Jim McGrath, who issued an apology on behalf of the President.

She joins actor Heather Lind, who said earlier this week that the former president touched her from behind while telling her a dirty joke in 2014.

Grolnick has also now accused Bush of a similar incident in 2016, in which he allegedly fondled her during a photo opportunity. In a statement, the Silver Creek High School graduate said of Bush, who was 92 at the time of the alleged incident:

“He reached his right hand around to my behind, and as we smiled for the photo he asked the group, ‘Do you want to know who my favorite magician is?’ As I felt his hand dig into my flesh, he said, ‘David Cop-a-Feel!’ ”

 

The incident took place when Grolick was working at a production of Hunchback of Notre Dame in Maine. Bush, who stays in nearby Kennebunkport during the summers, is a frequent visitor to the theater. Grolnick told Deadspin.com, which first reported the story, the “joke” was met with laughter by others in the room, and that former First Lady Barbara Bush responded by sarcastically saying, “He’s going to get himself put into jail.”

McGrath said in a statement that, because President Bush has been in a wheelchair for five years, his arm falls on the “lower waist.” He continued: “To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke — and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner. Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as inappropriate. To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely.”

Grolnick, who consented to have her name included in her statement, graduated from the University of Michigan in 2015. Shortly after, she made her Broadway debut in Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, as both an understudy and swing.

Her A Chorus Line director, Rod A. Lansberry, praised Grolnick for coming forward.

“I applaud her honesty and courage to bring her experience to light,” Lansberry said. It definitely brings this blight home when you continually find it has occurred to someone you know and have worked with. Her courage only increases my respect for Jordana, as a person and a performer.”

During her recent stay in Arvada, Grolnick joined cast members at a benefit screening of the film version of A Chorus Line to benefit the Denver Actors Fund. At the benefit, held at the Alamo Drafthouse, Grolnick sang Dance: Ten; Looks: Three, a song that in the stage production is sung by the character of Val. Because that actor was not available, Grolnick volunteered to sing it in her place. (See a short excerpt of the video here.)

After the incident in Maine, Grolnick told Deadspin’s Dave McKenna: “I just thought, ‘Whatever. He’s a dirty old man.’ ” She said she told her friends and family of the incident, and that “nobody didn’t believe me.” However, she was reluctant to come forward with her story until the recent outpouring of sexual-misconduct allegations following widespread revelations of abuse against film producer Harvey Weinstein.

“Now that the #metoo movement has brought this all to light, I think I should have been a little more alarmed to be touched so inappropriately by a man who was once the leader of the free world,” Grolnick told Deadspin. “He knows the power he has, and the reverence he deserves, even while sitting perhaps somewhat senile in a wheelchair.”

Denver Actors Fund in Action: Mark Shonsey

Mark, Shauna and Lillian Joy Shonsey.

 

Financial-aid recipient: Funnyman Mark Shonsey has been an an actor in the Denver theatre and improv-comedy communities since 2003. The graduate of John F. Kennedy High School and the University of Colorado Denver most recently played Nicky in the Town Hall Arts Center’s production of Avenue Q in January. It’s a role he first played  in Vintage Theatre’s four-star regional premiere in 2011. In 2013, he volunteered his services for Magic Moments, an annual musical revue that features able-bodied and special-needs performers performing side by side. Two of his biggest successes came in 2014, when he played Igor in Vintage Theatre’s Young Frankenstein and Moonface Martin in Town Hall’s Anything Goes. He has also performed for Equinox Theatre Company (A Night at Fawlty Towers), among others.

Their medical story: Mark and Shauna Shonsey welcomed their first child, Lillian Joy, on July 5, delivered prematurely by emergency C-Section. Lilly was rushed to the NICU, where doctors  discovered she had inhaled Meconium into her lungs, and she was intubated to help her breathing. Lillian was able to come home after about a week in the NICU, where she remained on oxygen for three months. She has since needed regular visits to lung doctors, urologists, and had two trips to the emergency room. She finally was able to come off oxygen on Sept. 5. But her  parents have seen the bills pile up throughout their ordeal. While Mark has continued working, Shauna lost her job five months into her pregnancy due to her own medical issues. A two-income family became one. By the time Lillian was born, the family savings were already depleted. Shauna was unable to find work for almost three months after the delivery. Now she is working, but only part-time, and for half her previous salary. All told, the Shonseys have accumulated more than $4,500 in post-insurance medical bills.

How we are helping: The Denver Actors Fund board has approved a grant of $3,000 to help provide the Shonsey family some time and breathing room while they get back on their financial feet. But that still leaves them with about $1,500 in the hole.

Update: On Nov. 23, the Board of Directors approved an additional grant of $1,000. Combined with $95 in targeted donations, the Denver Actors Fund has now made $4,095 available to the Shonsey family to date.

How you can help us help the Shonseys more: If you would like to direct a specific, additional donation to the Shonsey family, simply mail checks made out to The Denver Actors Fund (with Mark Shonsey’s name in the topic field) to P.O. Box 11182, Denver, CO, 80212. Or use this donation link. If you use the online option, be sure to designate that your donation is targeted for Mark Shonsey. Otherwise, your donation will be applied to the replenishment of the Denver Actors Fund’s general fun

A message from Mark Shonsey: The Shonsey Family would like to give the biggest THANK YOU to the Denver Actors Fund.  Lillian Joy is such a blessing in our lives.  Things unfortunately didn’t go as planned throughout the entire pregnancy, and that put us into financial trouble.  The Denver Actors Fund has been there to save us, and release a lot of the burden off our shoulders. As a longtime member of the Denver theatre community, I have seen actors struggle with life’s expenses for so many years.  I was lucky enough to participate, and donate to, the Denver Actors Fund’s first fundraiser back in 2013 at the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse. This group has graced so many people with funds, peace of mind and love ever since. I never thought I would ever need their help. But they worked so fast, and they made it so stress-free to help us. If you know me, you know I am the constant funnyman, always trying to make people laugh. I have lived my life off of a mantra that the great Red Skelton would say after every performance: “If by chance some day you’re not feeling well and you should remember some silly little thing I’ve said or done, and it brings back a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart, then my purpose as your clown has been fulfilled.”  The Denver Actors Fund has truly brought a smile to the faces of Shauna, Lillian, and me. I will never forget what they have done for us.  I will do everything I can to support, raise funds and donate to this wonderful organization. From the bottom of our hearts, we can’t thank you enough!

Denver Actors Fund in Action: Paul Hartman

Financial-aid recipient: Paul Hartman and his wife, Amanda, are both longtime members of the local theatre community.  Paul is a musician who has playing in pits from the Midtown Ats Center in Fort Collins to the Candelight Dinner Theater in Johnstown to Performance Now in Lakewood to more. Most recently, he played for DAF recipients Melissa and Patrick Sawyer in the Longmont Theatre Company’s August production of Today, Tomorrow, & Forever – A celebration of Patsy Cline. Amanda is an actor who most recently appeared in Longmont Theatre Company’s Spamalot.

Their medical story: Paul was in a car accident in April that herniated a disk in his lower spine. Several times he has been scheduled for the corrective surgery that would eventually allow him to return to work, but other serious health issues have repeatedly conspired to postpone that surgery. The couple have three children and on the verge of being evicted. Last week, Paul was again rushed to the hospital and was admitted for several days, further depleting the family’s ability to pay rent or for other basic necessities.

How we are helping: The Denver Actors Fund board has approved an initial grant of $2,800 to help the Hartmans pay two months of rent and some basic living expenses. But because Paul’s return to work remains weeks or even months away, what we we have provided is just a temporary stopgap. Including targeted donations from the public, the DAF has made a total of $2,950 available to the Hartman family.

How you can help us help the Hartmans more: If you would like to direct a specific, additional donation to Paul Hartman, simply mail checks made out to The Denver Actors Fund (with Paul Hartman’s name in the topic field) to  P.O. Box 11182, Denver, CO, 80212. Or use this donation link. If you use the online option, be sure to designate that your donation is targeted for Paul Hartman. Otherwise, your donation will be applied to the replenishment of the Denver Actors Fund’s general fund.

A message from Paul Hartman: “We aren’t out of the woods yet, but with you’re help, life has become manageable.
From my little theatre family to our theatre family at large: THANK YOU!”

Denver Actors Fund in Action: Greg Alan West

Financial-aid recipient: Greg Alan West is a longtime actor and costumer in the Colorado theatre community whose notable roles have included the one-man epic I Am My Own Wife and Lucien in The Boys Next Door for Firehouse Theatre Company; Peter Quince in A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the Colorado Shakespeare Festival; and Dogberry in Lost & Found Productions’ Much Ado About Nothing. He costumed Firehouse Theatre Company’s just-concluded The Mystery of Love and Sex, and also made a brief cameo appearance in the play.

His medical story: In 2013, Greg was was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. After a year, it got worse and he was put on the heart transplant list. After almost two years, he got the call that there was a donor with both the heart and kidney he needed. The surgery took about 14 hours. Incredibly, in January 2015, Greg had played the more than 30 roles in the play I Am My Own Wife while on the heart-transplant  list. Doug Wright’s play tells the story of the infamous German transvestite Charlotte Van Mahlsdorf. Dave Perry of the Aurora Sentinel called West’s performance “mesmerizing in a play that lets the astounding tale seep through the audience.” He contacted the Denver Actors Fund in August in need of regular transportation to a local hospital three times a week for ongoing rehab appointments. Greg cannot drive himself because of the medications he is taking.

How we are helping: Denver Actors Fund Action Team Leader Kristen Samu put the call out for volunteer drivers and almost immediately had a longterm plan in place. Beki Pineda, Tricia Stevens and Michael Gritters agreed to each take one day of the week driving Greg to his rehab from 7 to 8:15 a.m., after which they drive him to his daily job at Metro State University. It’s been going on for about two months now.

How you can help us help Greg more: Typically this is where we tell how you can give targeted financial donations that go directly to the recipient. But because Greg is not seeking financial relief, we will use this opportunity to remind readers that the Denver Actors Fund is always wanting to expanding its pool of volunteers. There is a particular need at present for those in the Aurora area, but all are welcome. Volunteers sign up for specific tasks they prefer, and when the call comes in for help, they accept only those tasks they want to accept. There are no assignments. For more information or to sign up, click here.

A message from Gregory Alan West: “My transport angels have helped me in getting my rehab done in so many ways. I will always be grateful for them. I would also very much like to thank Firehouse Theater Company (Helen Hand, Kris Paddock, Debbie, Clint Heyn and Kevin, for all their wonderful support during the past 4 1/2 years. They allowed me to perform I Am My Own Wife when I could barely walk a block without having to rest. Being the first company to cast me after having what doctors call “a bridge to transplant” surgery meant that I had to perform with a bag full of large batteries and a controller. There was the possibility of a transplant happening at any time. Thank you, Katie! Thank you, Lost & Found productions for casting me in two shows with the same issues. Thank you Deb, Kevin, Liz and Christian. Of course, all the wonderful actors and technicians who gave me such support during that year. And thank you now to The Denver Actors Fund for coming to my aid with three wonderful people: Tricia, Beki and Mike make it possible for me to get to cardiac rehab and then to work. I couldn’t do my Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings without them. The Denver theater community is the best. Thank you all!”
