Re: “Firehouse Theatre Is Greater Than One

I am not going to use all the fancy words. What I see is they Had Carol do all the hard work for 19 years and now as they approach the 20 year anniversary of the theatre, they get rid of her. It is a great marketing tool when you reach 20 years. They cut the last original founder out at 19 years. Think about it.

Re: “Burning Down the House

I am just so impressed with the Theatre Artist, Donors, Patrons, Ticket buyers, you really stick together, it is beautiful. I love the pledges about not supporting the Firehouse until Carol is reinstated. You can win this battle! I guess they do have to pay $100 a show to get actors to cross the line. I am not making light of that. They will not be able to keep that up especially with larger cast unless of course they dump the present building and get a larger space. I doubt if the board will keep the managing director and that temporary artistiuc director, they will want someone more Tier One experienced. I don't know many of you pernally yet, but I respect all of the artist and supporters tha have taken the pledge. That is so strong. Ignore the anonymous posters. It is probably the board and the temporary artistiuc director and general manager of the theatre. I found it interesting an actor cast in one of the leads of "Any Given Monday" said he and the other lead actpoor were not contacted, this is after I believe the Firehouse stated they were contacdtin all prior cast members. That tells you how much you can trust the board statements and Firehouse Staff statements. I am still curious to see if the new Director for "Any Given Monday" really is the temporary artistic directors friend from Petersburg, and two of the case are his friends. If I am wrong I apologize. I loved the space at The Firehouse Theatre. I was working on a solo show with Bill Patton. Carol gave 19 years. Just think next year they celebrate the 20th year. What a great year, and what a great year for self serving boardmembers and staff members to dump her. They can take all the glory and carol is put out on the back porch. I am not trying to be negative, but that is the wy I see it. I just realized I am on the Style Weekly site, I am reposting this on the other site also.

Re: “Burning Down the House

I totally disagree with Spampatrol, funny how negative ads never post their real names. I think it a powerful statement for each Patron, Subscriber, Ticket Buyer and Artist has individually typed there own name and posted to state they will stay away from The Firehouse Theatre. It shows how we can stick together. Of course Spampatrol I respect your posting even thought you did not give a name. But each post that an individual makes on here about not going to The Firehouse is an invidual statement by each person. I think that is powerful.

Re: “Burning Down the House

I, John Loan, do resolve to not support the Firehouse Theatre Project in any way until the founding artistic director, Carol Androski Piersol, is reinstated as artistic director, pending the dissolution of the current Board. I will not create work, nor be in the audience, nor donate to, nor be in support of this space until this happens. If you are an artist (supporter, ticket-buyer, donor, student, technician) please join with us in posting this.
