Theatre Professionals Teleconferences are held each year on a rotating basis for groups of theatre leaders and staff. Moderated by experienced professionals from the field, these series offer geographically separated theatre professionals the opportunity to share information and ideas and to work with peers to find solutions to common problems. Agendas are directed by the needs and interests of the participants, with assistance from the moderator and TCG staff. Participation in the Theatre Professionals Teleconferences is open only to TCG Member Theatre staff.

Moderator for Development Directors
Jamie Clements
Director of Development
Alliance Theatre

Jamie Clements is Director of Development for Atlanta’s Tony Award-winning Alliance Theatre. Now in his fourth season with the Alliance, Jamie has led the theatre to more than double both Board annual giving (65 regular members, 12 lifetime members) and Major Gifts annual giving, while simultaneously wrapping up the fundraising and payment plans for the Alliance’s $40M Capital and Endowment campaign, which successfully closed in Fall 2016. Beginning in January 2017, the Alliance not only undertook a complete renovation of its mainstage—now the Coca-Cola Stage at the Alliance Theatre--, but also an 18-month off-site journey that took 165,000 patrons to 13 unique venues around metropolitan Atlanta for the 12 productions staged while renovations were underway. Never to rest on past accomplishments, the Alliance celebrated its 50th Anniversary season and grand opening of the new stage in January 2019 with the largest, and most successful fundraising gala in the Theatre’s history. When he isn’t fundraising, Jamie sings first tenor and serves on the board of the Atlanta Master Chorale, one of the premier community choirs in America today.

Dramaturg and Director, LCT Directors Lab
Lincoln Center Theater

Anne Cattaneo is the dramaturg of Lincoln Center Theater and the creator and head of the Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab. A three term past president of Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas, she is the recipient of LMDA’s first Lessing Award for lifetime achievement of dramaturgy. She has worked widely as a dramaturg on classical plays with directors such as Bartlett Sher, Robert Wilson, Adrian Hall, Jack O’Brien, Robert Falls, Mark Lamos and JoAnne Akalaitis. As the director of the Playworks Program at the Phoenix Theater during the late 1970's, she commissioned and developed plays by Wendy Wasserstein (ISN'T IT ROMANTIC) Mustapha Matura (MEETINGS) and Christopher Durang (BEYOND THERAPY). For the Acting Company, she created two projects: ORCHARDS (published by Knopf and Broadway Play Publishing) which presented seven Chekhov stories adapted for the stage by Maria Irene Fornes, Spalding Gray, John Guare, David Mamet, Wendy Wasserstein, Michael Weller and Samm-Art Williams, and LOVE’S FIRE (published by William Morrow) responses to Shakespeare sonnets by Eric Bogosian, William Finn, John Guare, Tony Kushner, Marsha Norman, Ntozake Shange and Wendy Wasserstein. Her own translations of 20th Century German playwrights include Brecht's GALILEO (Goodman Theater 1986 starring Brian Dennehy) and Botho Strauss' BIG AND LITTLE (Phoenix production starring Barbara Barrie, published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.) She is currently on the theater history faculty at Juilliard. In July 2011, she was awarded the Margo Jones Medal given annually to a “citizen of the theater who has demonstrated a significant impact, understanding and affirmation of the craft of playwriting, with a lifetime commitment to the encouragement of the living theatre everywhere.” Yale University Press will be issuing her book, “The Art of Dramaturgy” in Spring, 2020.
