~ For years, COTU has brought you some of your favorite shows to life on stage. There have been some who have looked at our work and dismissed it and even a few who have attempted to sabotage shows. We have had past cancellations for various reasons and each one was difficult. This is part of the cost and business of art. In our
recent cancellation of "Everybody Goes to Rick's" we were made victim of a false contract. There will be those who will look at this and question what has happened- to answer those questions I will post the emails that were sent and information I have available (pending the go ahead from those looking into the incident). I admit to making mistakes and I fully own up to that as this has been a trying experience for all involved. We do not wish for anyone or organization to go through this. Just so you know, as mentioned before, an investigation has been started on the parties who committed this act. So fair warning- read over everything, have a lawyer look at it, and confirm. Going forward, COTU will implement a 'discovery' post showing our contracts so that those who have questions can see and review our process 
(case in point, our request for Lion in Winter and Rocky Horror) .
Our apologies to those who wished to see 'Rick's..' and to all of those involved.
As always- support the arts where ever, however and whenever the occur.
