Maybe. My first two attempts at finding a dramaturg bombed out. What I mean is I didn’t get a response to my solicitous emails for 10 days … an eternity in internet response time. So I decided to stop messing around and went straight to my FB friend Jackie Goldfinger at PlayPenn, who found me a dramaturg in 24 hours. Going to New York to meet with her in a couple days.
It’s not a requirement, we could have done a phone call, but I prefer to meet the people I’m dealing with in person and I enjoy going into the city, especially during the holidays.
