Schahrazad and the Sultan

Producer’s Perspective:

Shortly after 9/11 the incomparable Ben Cameron, then Executive Director of Theatre Communications Group, came from New York to San Francisco to address the Theatre Bay Area annual conference. While many of us were questioning our role as local theatre artists in a world where international affairs and cultural differences suddenly seemed so much more important, Ben reminded us that what we do matters. As theatre artists, we are story-tellers, and just as when a house is afire, the first thing we grab are our family photo albums, the stories we tell on our stages are our collective history and are even more important to preserve when your figurative house is burning down around you.
