Theatre Building Chicago spokesperson Jeff DeLong said today that board president Craig Wilson has offered to step down if departing artistic director John Sparks will agree to stay on. Sparks announced his departure in protest after the board dumped longtime executive director Joan Mazzonelli. The board's action has led to a storm of comment (at the end of the story linked above). According to DeLong, discussions between Sparks and the board to settle this issue were to be held this morning, but have been postponed to an indefinite date later in the week. Just yesterday, TBC officially announced that associate artistic director Allan Chambers had been promoted to the AD job.
