An introduction to the mysterious theater role of a dramaturg by a legend in the field

Anne Cattaneo was among the first Americans to fill the role of dramaturg, one of theater’s best kept secrets. Using detailed stories from her lifetime of work with theater artists such as Tom Stoppard, Wendy Wasserstein, Robert Wilson, Shi-Zheng Chen, and Sarah Ruhl, as well as the discovery of a “lost” play by Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston, Cattaneo provides an invaluable manual to those studying, working in, and interested in this most fascinating profession.

Anne Cattaneo is the longtime dramaturg of Lincoln Center, and creator and head of the 25 year old Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab. At the announcement of her 2020 Guggenheim Fellowship for Theater Arts, American Theatre Magazine saluted her as “a legendary dramaturg.”
