Howard Shalwitz: Finding Your Itch and Scratching It
Finding Your Itch and Scratching It
Howard Shalwitz, Artistic Director, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company
Drawing on his perspective as a theatre founder, Howard Shalwitz will explore how an organization’s founding motivations and culture can play out over time to encourage innovation. More specifically, he will describe the evolution of Woolly Mammoth’s recent “Connectivity” strategy as a current example of “scratching the same itch” that the theatre began scratching 35 years ago.
