Hamilton Dramaturgy’s TheatreNow!

Thank you so much for your interest in TheatreNow!

On TheatreNow! I interview important contemporary female theatre artists, and I would like to make this series a seminal program that people from all over the world will listen to in the years to come. The podcasts  are also posted on my blog at http://hamiltondramaturgy.wordpress.com

TheatreNow! creates an online presence and library of female theatre experts’ ideas and opinions. I serve as Producer and Host, and Linsey Bostwick serves as Editor.

I’ve already posted conversations with: Quiara Alegria Hudes (playwright/librettist); Kristin Marting (director/artistic director); Claire Lautier (actor); Valentina Fratti (director/playwright); Ruth Margraff (musician/composer/writer); Yvette Heyliger (playwright) and Yvonne Farrow (actor/choralographer).

Others who have agreed to appear: Lynn Nottage (Pulitzer Prize winning playwright), Danai Guriri (actor/playwright), Laura Maria Censabella (playwright), Kamilah Forbes (writer/producer/curator), Alexandra Maria Beech (playwright)  and Anne Kauffman (director).

Rather than be a series focusing on biographical details, I conduct the interviews in such a way as to focus on each woman’s early artistic influences, her own assessment of her contribution to the professional theatre, and her artistic process. I also plan to post a written bio (also in digital form) from each subject on my blog http://hamiltondramaturgy.wordpress. com near the podcast.

I am very excited to create a lasting and seminal podcast series which ensure that women theatre artists can reveal and discuss their creative processes and influences.

Sincerely, Anne Hamilton – Producer and Host
