Re: “What’s Happening at the Byrd?

So the board saw fit to fire Todd without cause and gave a weak, milquetoast response designed to focus on a future that somehow sounds even weaker. A purely art-house film house? Really? The Byrd? That's the kind of move I'd make if I wanted to justify shuttering it and selling it off because it suddenly doesn't make any money. This poor board of directors is perhaps only just coming to the realization of just how important Todd is to both the Byrd and the RVA arts community at large. They've now reaped the whirlwind of a PR nightmare. The board's twofold PR effort will now consist of 1.) justifying firing a twenty-one-year employee without documented, written cause AND doing so without offering any severance during the holidays (not a good look, folks) and 2.) assuring a highly skeptical public that a now rudderless organization is somehow better off without arguably the single biggest difference-maker & bridge-builder in the Byrd's storied history. It doesn't add up. None of it does. The board owes the community of Byrd supporters a fully transparent response, and it certainly owes Todd a financial severance to match his two-decade commitment to making the Byrd an RVA hotspot and home for festivals, premieres and so much more.

Re: “Firehouse Theatre Turns Hose on Itself

A better actor than Joe Inscoe? Good luck with that.
