The Producing Artistic Director for Greenville's Warehouse Theater, Mike Sablone delivers our 232nd story.
Mike Sablone is a dramaturg. Well, he was a dramaturg, as an intern at Trinity Rep fresh out of college and later on as a member of the staff of the Center Theater Group in Los Angeles. What's a dramatug, you might ask. A dramaturg is an editor of new plays, a person working with playwrights to develop their work, so that the best version of what is in the writer's mind ends up on the final pages of the play. If we ask him how being a dramaturg is applicable to his current job as the Producing Artistic Director for Greenville's Warehouse Theater, he'll tell us that both are about inspiring people to be the best they can be and about making that communication that occurs between an artist and the audience be memorable.
