Ahlgren examines the role of stage managers in live performing arts contexts using ethnographic methods of data collection. Dr. Algren’s project explores how stage managers engage in organizational, emotional, and aesthetic labor as they manage the relationships among public-facing performers, authority-wielding directors, and the often-invisible and mostly male backstage workers of the theatre industry.
