It's all about the play.  Skylight's focus is on bringing the writer's vision to the stage and our programs are built to achieve that. We believe in the power of the artist to transform lives and in the theatre it all starts with the writer's words.                                                                                    - Gary Grossman, Producing Artistic Director
