News   Skinner Resigns from Chicago's Circle Theatre
 
CHICAGO--Karen Skinner, who has transformed the suburban-based Circle Theatre from a backwater community theatre in Forest Park to a potent purveyor of quality fare, has resigned. Though exhausted from her own hard-won success, Skinner can find solace in one final triumph: Her theatre leads the non-Equity pack with 12 nominations for Monday night's Joseph Jefferson Citations ceremony. Circle Theatre's productions of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Grand Hotel and Principia Scriptoriae are cited for numerous acting, directing and production kudos. Unlike many producers, Skinner can be sure that she left a legacy.
