"At the beginning of the fall semester, a rumor circulated that the faculty was planning to shut No Shame down. To this day, I am not sure exactly how much of this rumor was true or how it even got started. But what is true is that Amy Lynn Pigott drew up a petition to save No Shame, and after this outpouring of support from students, department chair Cosmo Catalano expressed that he had no intention of putting an end to No Shame Theatre and the tragedy (real or imagined) was averted. ." ---Jeff
