Broadway Producer Arrested on Child Porn Charges

Broadway producer Ben Sprecher was arrested early Tuesday on charges of possession of child pornography, police said. Sprecher, 65, was arrested around 6 a.m. at his home on West 122nd Street in Morningside Heights. Police were seen searching his home after his arrest.

Sprecher was the executive producer of the 2017 run of the stage adaptation of “The Exorcist.” He also produced “The Shape of Things,” “American Buffalo,” and “The Odd Couple.”

The 2012 opening of Sprecher’s production “Rebecca the Musical” failed after an ex-stock broker scammed Sprecher out of more than $60,000 in fees with fake promises of $4.5 million in investments.
