Jennifer S. Hagerman of the Burch Porter and Johnson law firm has been tapped by Playhouse on the Square to lead an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by POTS executive producer Jackie Nichols. A review will also be conducted of the theatre's "policies and procedures," according to a report in The Commercial Appeal.

Decades old allegations of misconduct involving a minor (now an adult) went public and were shared on social media when Nichols 49-year-old stepdaughter posted her story on Facebook.

Michael Detroit, POTS longtime associate producer is standing in for the 70-year-old Playhouse founder who's taken a leave of absence while the investigation is being conducted.

Nichols has denied allegations while characterizing the investigation as responsible.
