Demand newness. The theatre is not about nostalgia. The theatre is not a museum. Plays
don’t hang on walls, oblivious to time. The Theatre is a rehearsal of the concerns of the present moment. Whether the given text is old or new, demand that it move you forward.

DEDICATED TO THE PLAYWRIGHT
What is a dramaturge? Although it’s been nearly 40 years since the profession was introduced to America, our function is still a mystery to many. Dramaturgy straddles the border region somewhere between the script and the performance. A good dramaturge asks questions but does not seek to rewrite the play. It is my passion is to aid the writer in fulfilling their intention and to see their work through to production. I believe that writers feel compelled to write because they are in search of the truth. I strive to create a welcoming atmosphere and nurturing environment for writers to do their best work. I am committed to diversifying the voices of the American theatre, and I have an effective framework and track record for accomplishing that.
I look forward to working with you! Shoot me an email so we can chat...
