As a freelance dramaturg, I work primarily with theaters to conduct research on the show itself. I believe that dramaturgy is the blood coursing through the veins of any production. You cut open a production, and dramaturgy oozes out of the veins. In turn, this research can be used for dramaturgical packets, marketing materials, and the production itself.
My scholarship focuses on answering the questions: Why this show? Why now? Through answering these questions, I'm able to help directors and theaters better understand their reasonings for producing work in our modern age.
My work has supported productions Off-Broadway with the J2 Spotlight Musical Theatre Company and across the country with theaters such as Music Theatre Wichita, The Legacy Theatre, The Forestburgh Playhouse, The Duluth Playhouse, and Allenberry Playhouse. I have also collaborated with universities and high schools such as University of Pittsburgh, University of Texas at Arlington, Penn State University, and Cumberland Valley High School.
