BWW Review: AN UNTITLED NEW PLAY BY JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE at City Theatre and THE THANKSG Photo BWW Review: AN UNTITLED NEW PLAY BY JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE at City Theatre and THE THANKSGIVING PLAY at Arcade Comedy Theater Sing the Praises of the Dramaturge
by Greg Kerestan - Dec 13, 2021

Pop culture is full of paeans to the composer or the playwright; just this past fall, Andrew Garfield starred in Tick Tick... Boom! on Netflix as the young Jonathan Larson. But outside of insider tell-alls, there's not a lot of focus on the behind the scenes creatives of the theatrical world, especially the dramaturge. As a sometimes dramaturge myself, I know the position is misunderstood if it's understood at all: the shepherd of a new work, the dramaturge assists in the creative development of a piece by advising the author and the creative staff, doing research and providing insight and input on structure, tone and other aspects of the work in progress. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered that, one particular weekend, Pittsburgh was showing not one but TWO new plays about the role of the dramaturge in the theatrical process.
