ollmann quits: "destroy an institution"

kurt ollmann, under verbal agreement with the skylight to play the count in the marriage of figaro, withdraws:
I write as one of the performers slated by Bill Theisen to take part in the upcoming Skylight season (as the Count in The Marriage of Figaro), but not yet contracted by the Dillner administration. I'm not in a position to withdraw or resign but certainly have no intention of working for the company in its present form.

I recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of my debut at the Skylight and am amazed that it takes so few misguided souls to destroy an institution that has been a part of our lives for so long.

  2. type "Kurt Ollmann" into Google: 110,000 results
    type "Eric Dillner" into Google: 3,490 results - and not all of them on the first page are even about the Skylight's Eric Dillner.

    And the board is willing to keep Dillner because?
