    Well, I hope you all have fun this season regardless of what performers/acts are there! And maybe I'll see some of you at PARF for Labor Day weekend.

    The corporate management of REP, the Faire's parent company feels that
    they want to present NY as a family friendly show and present nothing
    that can be construed as offensive.
    That does seem rather strange. We don't have Christoph the Insulter for the full season at Bristol, but it does seem like Bristol is allowing more of the adult show back in. Aren't they run by the same company?

    This is one of my biggest issues at Faire. I don't mind that there are rules - clothing, speech, acts, etc. - but they need to be the same for everybody. Don't change the rules because you like or dislike someone, or you're having a bad hair day.

    Sometimes these "rules" are enacted because of "requests" by local corporate sponsorships. It sounds as if what is going on at NYRF is very similar to what has happened at OHRF since Kroger has become the major sponsor.

    In their literature, NYRF has stated that they are a family show with regards to the costumes visitors wear. Cancelling a show because it has adult content is ludicrous, warn patrons in advance about its content and if they choose to go anyway that's their problem.

    Ideally, that's the way it should be. Unfortunately, that's not what's happening around here. It makes sense to you and me, but not to the corporate bigwigs.

    they actually did! Crossbones has a whole Shpiel (albeit short sweet and to the point) he goes through at the beginning of the show and if memory serves me right, even had Security posted at the only access to the Stage area where the show was held last year......which was quite secluded imho

    Alas, family obligations will keep me away.

    I'll probably be there Sunday though.
