At a full meeting of the Board of Directors last night, it was resolved to establish communications with Bill Theisen regarding the role of Artistic Director at The Skylight.in other words, under what conditions? has the board suddenly found an artistic director's salary lying around? or is that to be negotiated?
The Board would like to accept and embrace the many offers it has received for benefit performances, assistance in fundraising, and donations. Anyone interested in helping The Skylight can e-mail the board at firstname.lastname@example.org what i can gather, there have been two such offers. generous, yes. would this community do it? certainly. especially if the offers were matched by the board. would this community call eric dillner to offer their help? highly doubtful.
then, the kicker:
The board continues to support Eric Dillner and the entire staff of The Skylight who have filled in and carried on during this time. They deserve the respect and appreciation of all.skylight staff? yup. absolutely. wherever they stand, this has got to have been a tough time. but to suggest that eric dillner deserves anyone's respect at this point is beyond laughable.
