On November 14, 2010, SDCF hosted their first One-on-One Conversation of the 2010-2011 season at Atlantic Theatre Studios with 2009 Fichandler Award winner Jonathan Moscone (Artistic Director, California Shakespeare Theatre) and 2010 Alan Schneider Award winner Anne Kauffman (Obie Award, The Thugs) and moderated by SDCF Executive Director Laura Penn. The two directors discuss their career paths and the many mentors and forms of mentorship they encountered along the way, including directing professor Michael Hackett and artistic directors Joe Papp, Richard Hamburger (Dallas Theater Center) and Irene Lewis (Baltimore Centerstage). Other topics include directing regionally as a freelance director and as an artistic director, the balance of running an institution and being an artist, and how to approach and direct a new play vs. the classics. Listeners will gain a new appreciation for theatre outside of New York City and what it means to pursue a career as an American director in 2011.
