Defendant contracted with Plaintiff to narrate a performance. Subsequently, Defendant received numerous public complaints about Plaintiff’s upcoming performance on account of Plaintiff’s political support for the Palestine Liberation Organization. After receiving these complaints, Defendant cancelled the contract with Plaintiff. Plaintiff sued Defendant for breach of contract, claiming that the breach resulted in a loss of future economic opportunity because many movies and theatres that would have offered her a job in the ordinary course of events did not do so because of Defendant’s cancellation. In the year after the cancellation, Plaintiff agreed to work on three different films. While working on those films she turned down other offers. Each of the films, however, was eventually canceled due to financial difficulties. Plaintiff also presented the testimony of Theodore Mann, a Broadway producer, who stated that after considering hiring Plaintiff for a play, the production company decided not to because the Defendant’s cancellation “would have a negative effect on us if we hired her.”
