I'm trying to conduct a study, but I can't do it alone.  Like almost everybody in theatre, I need a stage manager.  Several, in fact.  I need them to sit down in front of a mic and tell me how they experience the various stages (hah!) of their job.  I hope they will help me out, because theirs is a story that does not get told in academia.  And in one month, I have the opportunity to tell it at an international conference.

So, if you or someone you know can answer "yes" to ALL of the below questions, please get in touch with me as soon as possible.  I can fill in more details and distribute consent forms before any interview plans are made.

Kindly note that the criteria is only meant to standardize the study subjects as much as possible.


  • Served as a PSM or SM on at least three Broadway shows?
  • Accumulated at least nine months of experience as a PSM or SM on Broadway?
  • Been the originating PSM or SM on at least one Broadway show?
  • And finally, are you currently in New York City?

My sincere thanks in advance for sharing widely and/or volunteering.
