Re: “Geek Culture

I was a fairy in that wonderful RAT production of midsummer nights dream. Great memories.

Re: “Letter: In Firehouse Controversy, Time to Come Together

During Joni's tenure on the Firehouse Board, the theatre grew and prospered. Unfortunately under the current Board the opposite is occurring.

Re: “Firehouse Weighs Reinstatement of Ousted Director

The boycott of the Firehouse Theatre Project is spreading to a boycott of VCU, as one of its professors has apparently "crossed the picket line" to direct a play at the Firehouse. When will the Board of the Firehouse realize its actions are damaging the entire city?

Re: “Burning Down the House

I, Susan Elizabeth Cusack, do hereby join those who will not support the Firehouse Theatre Project in any capacity until the Executive Committee that terminated Carol Piersol resigns. I was an acting student with Janet Wilson pre-Firehouse Theatre in early 1993, and I was active at the Firehouse Theatre in many capacities for 20 years, as a student, performer, costume designer, Board Member, Secretary of the Board, Fundraiser, and most importantly to me, as a friend to many of the wonderful actors, directors, students, managers, producers and designers who graced the Firehouse with their talents. My husband and I have continued to support the Firehouse annually with a donation for the past 15 years. It is with heavy heart that I must agree with the hundreds of others who feel the soul of the Firehouse Theatre Project was hijacked by an agenda of "toxic intrigue", to echo Bill Patton's words, when its Executive Board discarded Carol Piersol like so much used trash.

Anyone who works for this Board is a scab.

Re: “No Piersol, No Peace

I read with astonishment in the news that a board member cited Ms. Piersol's age as a topic of discussion for this board in planning her termination. It is my understanding that age may not be considered when planning termination of an employee. What is clear to me as a person who has been involved with the Firehouse for 20 years in the capacities of student, actor, designer, event organizer, board member, board officer, financial supporter, artistic committee member, etc., is that this board must resign for the good of this theatre. If this board chooses to continue, it may have the 2012-2013 end of year donations and season subscription funds for now; however, this board will have to build a new theatre from the "ashes" of the one they were elected to uphold, which seems to be not quite what they were elected to do, especially considering the resounding success of this theatre's latest season!
