I think they forgot a line in

I think they forgot a line in the story. Probably meant to say "...due to low ticket sales." If it's not Madea, the African American-themed plays don't seem to do too well around here.

It it the standard performer

It it the standard performer response to low advance tickets sales. Many acts, even big name performers, have canceled their appearances here because the CSRA public doesn't buy enough tickets far enough in advance to ensure profitability.

Why would performers waste their time and effort on a venue that doesn't show much interest?
