Offscript: Searching for the Future

This month we host a special conversation about the search process that led NYC’s Rattlestick Theatre to hire its new artistic director, Will Davis.

Offscript, American Theatre’s flagship podcast for a number of years, is back as a Facebook Live chat with the magazine’s editors and special guests as well as an audio podcast.

This month we present an in-depth discussion of the leadership search, inspired by Seema Sueko’s article “Searching Opportunities” and moderated by CNTR ARTS founder Bryan Joseph Lee. As a case study of a leadership search process, with all lessons and challenges involved, our guests explore the process that recently led New York City’s Rattlestick Theater to hire Will Davis as their artistic director. Hear all about the candidate considerations from Davis as well as from Rattlestick board chair Jeff Thamkittikasem, and ALJP Consulting’s Jocelyn Prince, who helped lead the search process.
