"Working with Natasha, Jeremy, and Molly has been an invaluable opportunity to show Musical Theatre Factory writers how useful a dramaturg can be in their development process. These shows have grown and gone on to receive further support from MTF. The projects we bring in to MTF are widely varied in tone, style, and content, and Beehive dramaturgs have proven themselves adept at customizing their approach to the needs of the artists they are working with—providing everything from talking through story and theme, to feedback sessions with the creative team and audiences about how intent is landing, to deep discussions about structure and character arcs."
—Shakina Nayfack, artistic director, Musical Theatre Factory
