theisen has changed his mind.
theisen joins the growing list of artists turning down their contracts for next season:
Dear Eric, Suzanne, the Skylight Board of Directors and the Skylight Board of Advocates,
I am writing today to resign from my directing duties for the Skylight 50th anniversary season productions of THE BARBER OF SEVILLE, PLAID TIDINGS, THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT WITH COLIN AND PAULA CABOT and THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO.
My agreement with Eric and the Skylight was to return to direct these shows as I originally conceived them and with the casts that have been in place for months. With the firing of two BARBER cast members last week the agreement I signed has been broken and I am not able to return to the Skylight under these conditions.
Not being a part of this anniversary season that so many of us have worked on for more than a year breaks my heart, but I am sad to say that the Skylight that I know and love is just a memory after the events of the past five weeks and I fear the future of the company is bleak.
