*Bill Cosby’s current troubles have resulted in the option of refunds to those who purchased tickets to upcoming shows in New York.
The Journal News reports that Cosby has agreed to offer refunds to anyone wanting them for deciding not to attend his Dec. 6 appearances in Tarrytown, N.Y. The entertainer ‘s performance is scheduled for two shows at 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
In an email sent Friday from the Tarrytown Music Hall box office, the venue stated the following:
“Mr. Cosby’s management is now allowing for refunds for any patron’s (sic) that do not wish to attend the show. Please let me know if I may cancel and refund your order.”
The music hall’s executive director, Bjorn Olsson goes on to explain the venue’s reason for not cancelling Cosby’s appearances. If it did call off the performances, the report stated that Tarrytown Music Hall would have been responsible for paying $100,000 to the tour promoter.
Cosby’s offer to refund patrons is the latest development to occur amid sexual assault allegations against him. Over the last few weeks, the funnyman experienced the cancellation of projects for NBC and Netflix, in addition to cancelled appearances at a Las Vegas casino on Nov. 28 and another casino appearance in Arizona in February.
