editor’s note

THE HALF-JOKING WORKING TITLE FOR THIS SPECIAL ISSUE has been “Wisdom of the Elders.” Over the years we have consciously styled our monthly Role Call feature as a way to celebrate more than just “new” or “upcoming” or “emerging” talents, but by its nature the column does inevitably put a lot of focus on younger or early-career artists. As we mulled doing an expanded version of Role Call, as we did last December, we wondered: What if we shone a spotlight exclusively on some of the established veterans who’ve given lifetimes of work, love, brainpower, and sweat to the theatre field while they’re still in the thick of it? The resulting compendium (starting on p. 20) functions as a series of tributes to extraordinary dedication and perseverance, of course, but…

New York City-based reporter and critic Jose Solís, author of this issue’s André De Shields cover story (p. 14), says that though he’s met many celebrities and people he admires, “I’ve rarely felt as starstruck as I was by André De Shields. His presence exudes the charisma that reminded me of why some people gain immortality due to their work.” Solís continues, “Anyone would be intimidated by the ease with which he moves in the world, and I was grateful for his capacity to also show me the humanity he brings to his larger-than-life characters. Within seconds I went from intimidated to feeling like I was having a chat with my dearest friend in the world.” “I’ve attended productions at the Rep since I was a child, and like most people…

deep cuts from the archives

THIS YEAR, A GROUP OF TCG STAFFERS BEGAN AN archive project, gathering volumes of documentation of our theatre movement, from TCG incorporation papers to conference reports to board minutes, telegrams, and manuscripts. One late summer afternoon, a box arrived from TCG’s New Jersey storage facility with National Conference documents from the 1980s and 1990s. I was hoping the contents would shed light on a series of “non-binding resolutions” delivered to the TCG Board after the 1990 conference at Smith College in Northampton, Mass. I found photos of field leaders and artists’ panels from multiple conferences: Hal Prince, Gordon Davidson, Elizabeth Van Dyke, Rene Buch, Anne Bogart, and many more. I also came upon a beautiful photo of Yolanda King—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s eldest daughter—keynoting the 1990 conference. In perusing Todd London’s…

meghan pressman in with the new

IN 1999, MEGHAN PRESSMAN WAS AN APPRENTICE at Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts. It was there that she met Michael Ritchie, then the festival’s artistic director. Little did she know that 20 years later, she would be working alongside Ritchie at Center Theatre Group, Los Angeles’s largest nonprofit theatre. Pressman is in the midst of her first season as CTG’s managing director/CEO, which includes managing the budget for the $55 million three-venue organization. And Pressman is making L.A. theatre history as the first woman to hold that position. Innovation is part of her background. Prior to CTG, she was managing director of Washington, D.C.’s Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, which focused on form-breaking new plays. And as director of development at New York City’s Signature Theatre, she oversaw their influential ticket initiative,…
