There was an article in Sunday Week-end Argus magazine (page 6) about Colin Law and the Jacques Brel show.
Copy of letter sent to the Argus.
Very sad to see the publicity your newspaper has afforded to Colin Law and his show Jacques Brel. Here is a man who, over the past 30 years or so, has ripped off entertainment industry people by non-payment for services rendered and in fact still has a valid high court order against him for monies owing to a well know PR for a show staged at the Baxter 14 years ago.(He still owes me and others money from the same shows. He is also banned from Artscape Theatre as he still owes them a great deal of money from years ago.
A Facebook group was started to see just how bad the problem was and in 4 days over 100 people joined the group and some horrifying stories were posted.
He was persona non grata in Cape Town theatre for for many years but has now, somehow, managed to wangle his way back in via his company, Afro Asia Events, taking over the management of the New Space Theatre. (That is another story worth having a look at.)
(I started a website to carry on the expose of the Facebook group, called – Colin Law how much does he owe You? – which you can have a look at. https://patrickbd.wordpress.com/about )
