Chinn, 53, announced her resignation Tuesday during a meeting of Center Stage staff. "There were gasps," she said, adding that she will leave at the end of December. "These are extraordinary times that require bold decisions," Chinn said. "I've been thinking about this for quite some time and became convinced that Center Stage should be free to chart its own course without being confined by past practices — even if that meant reconsidering my own position.
