The Strand Theatre releases a statement to the upcoming comedy explosion tour with Michael Vick.

In an e-mail sent Friday, officials write:

"The Strand is caught in a difficult situation. As a non-profit organization, we cannot arbitrarily discriminate against any rental show. To do so would open The Strand to a lawsuit. Breaking a rental contract would also result in a lawsuit. We rent to a wide variety of shows without discrimination, and The Strand is not presenting, promoting, or sponsoring Michael Vick's Comedy Explosion Show."

The show is expected Saturday, July 12th at 7:00pm.
