About the Program:
During the summer of 2000, Theatre Communications Group, supported by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, convened six eight-person focus groups of professionals that assessed the challenges confronting their unique professions, their institutions and institutional theatres at large. TCG, which communicates most directly with artistic and managing directors, sought to reach out beyond that constituency to develop a more comprehensive and detailed awareness of field activity.
The convened groups included literary, financial and production managers, as well as development, education and marketing directors. Participants were nominated by their institutions—all TCG Member Theatres or associate theatres. Final selections were made with an effort to achieve balance among the theatres represented, in regard to budget size, region, mission and longevity.
