Cosby to appear in Tarrytown despite controversy

Bill Cosby is still scheduled for an appearance in Westchester next month despite the sexual assault controversy he is facing.



There are growing calls for Tarrytown Music Hall to cancel its upcoming show starring Cosby after sexual assault allegations recently resurfaced.



Cosby's attorney says the allegations are not true, but Cosby's career has been taking a hit. NBC scrapped a planned Cosby sitcom and TV Land will stop airing reruns of "The Cosby Show."



Despite many believing the Tarrytown Music Hall show should be canceled in December, executive producer Bjorn Olsson says a contract already exists.



"Since he is a very expensive artist, this would be a tremendous blow to the music hall, likely to force layoffs and cuts in our community programs," he said.
