The TRU Article

On the panel were Greta Barrett Holby, founder of Ardea Arts and the Family Opera Initiative, Melba LaRose (New York Artists Unlimited), Rich Orloff (Foolish Theatre Company), Mike Roderick (Small Pond Entertainment), Patricia Klausner (Shotgun Productions), and John Cooper (Turtle Shell Productions.) Ost began the evening by asking the panelists why they started their companies.

...
Klausner is currently the Artistic Director of Shotgun Productions, which was founded in 1989 by two actress-directors. It achieved nonprofit status in 1994. "Originally," Klausner recalled, "Shotgun existed to support women artists.
...
"We had to alter our mission statement," Klausner said, "because we were producing a lot of plays by men. Then, one founder left "because," Klausner said, "she had too many children" and, more recently, "the other left because she wasn't getting many acting or directing opportunities. At that point, Klausner took charge and turned Shotgun around. "This was a golden opportunity to remake the company," Klausner realized. Under her leadership, they are developing plays by women, including Bandit Sisters, a timely play about women in the military. She also involved Shotgun in a Global Arts Initiative, to bring arts education to disadvantaged children internationally. Soon, Klausner herself will go abroad with that project to create theater with orphaned children in Nairobi.
...
"I don't mean to be a bitch," Klausner told these auditors, "but have you ever thought of getting together and just founding one company?
...
Finally, Klausner advises, it sometimes becomes necessary for founders to allow the company to evolve without them. "You need to transfer your attention from personal loyalty to mission loyalty. Some of the most famous theater companies have existed for fifty, seventy-five, or hundred years or more, from the Comedie-Francaise to the Irish Abbey Theatre, to Moscow Art Theater. If a company is to last longer than a single person's career lifetime, it must be able to survive without its founder at the helm, and for reasons greater than its founder's personal ambition. "Founders leave," Klausner said.
