wilkowske quits: "breaks my heart"

andrew wilkowske, slated to perform the role of Figaro in both the barber of seville and the marriage of figaro has sent a letter of resignation to the skylight board, suzanne hefty, and eric dillner, making him the 24th artist to withdraw from the upcoming skylight opera theatre 50th anniversary season.
I'm writing to confirm that I too am withdrawing from The Barber of Seville and The Marriage of Figaro. I was to have played Figaro in both productions. It breaks my heart, but these shows have been severely compromised with the departure of Bill and so many others who have made SOT a second home for me.

    Bravo, Andy! It's been a while since I was there, but I'm glad to see so many people standing up for the Skylight we know and love.

  2. That's huge ... and so very sad.

  3. This one is sad. Andy is a truly top notch talent, probably one of the best Skylight has had. However, he's making a smart decision to not be associated with idiots and those whose power-mongering kills the art.
