In response to the Skylight Board of Directors invitation to return to the Skylight as its artistic director I want to say thank you- I am truly grateful to all of you. Having worked closely with many board members over the past five years I appreciate their commitment to the company and their support of the position of artistic director.
I am sad to say it is not an option for me to return to the Skylight in the capacity of artistic director under the current circumstances. I feel there has been a breach of trust and am quite certain that I would not be able to successfully continue my duties in the position.
The Skylight is a unique and vital arts organization, both locally and nationally, and I truly hope there is a way to move beyond this unfortunate situation and retain the heart of the Skylight as many of us know it.
