"My favorite line this year has been, 'Why don't you just produce hits?'" Julie Crosby said recalling a meeting with the board of the Women's Project Theater. "I thought that was one of the best questions I got this year from a board member.
"I really prefer the flops," she jokingly added. They're really just so much easier."
The board member's question referred to the lack of revenue brought in by productions put on by Women's Project Theater, a 36-year-old theatre dedicated to presenting works written and directed by women, of which Crosby had served as producing artistic director since 2006.
"I was shocked," Crosby said. "I have no idea. I have no idea why, honestly, why any of this was handled in the way it was handled."
An online petition protesting Crosby's departure and demanding the resignation of co-chairs Arlene Scanlan and Casey Kemper began circulating; as of July 18, the signature contained 665 signatures.
