"We are negotiating to replace those who need to be replaced and anyone who might need to be replaced," he said.
Dillner said that he began working on contingency plans on June 16, when he informed Theisen that he would be let go for economic reasons. At that time, he invited Theisen to direct five shows. A couple of weeks later, Theisen agreed to direct four, before pulling out altogether on Monday, after Dillner and board president Suzanne Hefty fired two of his cast members for posting on the internet anti-management remarks that Dillner characterized as threatening. (Dillner said that those firing were determined by a committee. He also said that he had discussed those firings in advance with Theisen, who disputes that.)
