Why "Producing Dramaturg"?
I've chosen my title over the more common "artistic director" in order to reflect my approach to the process of developing and staging theatrical works. I see my function as facilitating communication between dramatist and audience, with the performer(s) being the media through which that sacred, communal interaction takes place. When the playwright is present and the script under development, I strive to help the author realize his or her vision in a way that can be translated effectively from the page to the stage. When it comes to finished work, I select material that I believe speaks powerfully for itself, without the need for me to impose my own "vision" on it. (Not that there's anything wrong with that in certain situations.)
