That doesn't mean you can't part ways cordially. The Cough Cough has an unprecedented global impact. S*** does happen, and it's possible they're struggling very hard to keep everything going. Far better to part ways early with no hard feelings than to let things go south later.
If you do get a "no"/"maybe"and want a show that's considerably more affordable (or pro bono, depending on size/scope) shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
