a dog in the skylight fight?

on saturday, i suggested wtmj's charlie sykes, who publicly mocked the skylight opera theatre's board of directors and their decision to gut the company's entire artistic staff, doesn't have a dog in the skylight fight.

but as a tuesdays commenter reminds us, sykes is married to former opera soprano jan riordan, who has tread the skylight boards a number of times in the past, most notably as laurie in oklahoma and paquette in candide.

riordan currently is employed by milwaukee's lynde and harry bradley foundation as director of community programs.

the bradley foundation is an annual donor to the skylight opera theatre, to the tune of $80,000 in 2008.
