Ah, rumors and gossip. Amazing what gets said around the kink community. We’ve heard a few of them about the new Playhouse (even from as far away as California!) so we thought we’d set the record straight. Names involved in the rumors (aside from the people directly involved with the Playhouse) have been removed to protect the identity of those who may have started them.
Rumor: “Someone” is laying claim being the catalyst of the new Playhouse by being responsible for introducing Sir Robert to Glenda.
Fact: Slave jenna is the one who introduced the two, at an event in Philly in 2013.
Rumor: “Someone” is going to be the house vendor … and is also laying claim to being the house vendor of the Crucible and Studio 58.
Fact: We have planned for several vendors to rotate in the Playhouse and have been talking to one vendor that may be the “house” vendor – but it isn’t who is trying to lay the claim to it.
Rumor: We got hosed on our lease and we’re paying $12k/month in rent.
Fact: We got a sweet deal on our lease and are paying a small fraction of what the rumor claims. Seriously, 12k a month? No.
Rumor: Glenda is really the owner and just using Sir Robert as a front.
Fact: No, and there are legal papers to prove it. Everything is in Sir Robert’s name – lease, insurance, utilities, the Baltimore Playhouse name, etc. Glenda is our consultant who has been doing a great job in helping to get things done.
Rumor: Slave jenna and Glenda are sleeping together.
Fact: *smiles* Wrong again. Glenda is very happy with the woman she is currently with and slave jenna is happily married to Sir Robert.
Rumor: There are “secret” investors who have given Sir Robert money and will be taking over once the Playhouse opens, and changing the rules to exclude people.
Fact: No. The Baltimore Playhouse is a non-profit corporation – with a Board of Directors. No one can come in and “take over” at any time. There have been NO secret investors – the only money we have received to date have been from the people who have been generous on our GoFundMe page and fundraisers from a few munches.
