Biographical History

Ben Shaktman (1937- ) is an American playwright and director of Off-Broadway, regional repertory and television productions. He also created Shaktman Associates, an executive skills training company.

Shaktman was born in Peabody, Massachusetts in 1937. His given first name was Bernard which he changed to Ben in 1960. He received his B.A. degree Magna Cum Laude from Syracuse University in 1959 and his M. A. degree in social science from the Maxwell School of Political Science at Syracuse University in 1964.

Upon receiving a Fulbright fellowship (1959-1961) in playwriting and subsequently in directing, Shaktman went to Europe where he studied and worked at Oxford, Bristol University, the University of London, Paris, and Berlin. He was an observing director at the Royal Court Theater in London, and at the Theatre Nationale Populaire (TNP) in Paris, he co-directed Bertolt Brecht's Les Fusils de Señora Carrar in 1961. He worked as a directorial associate at the Berliner Ensemble which at that time was in East Berlin, assisting in the staging of Ostrovsky's The Abyss. His own play, Point in the Square, was produced in 1960 by the Bristol Old Vic School.

After returning to the United States in 1962, Shaktman served for two years as artist-in-residence and lecturer in drama at Syracuse University. While at Syracuse he staged the U.S. premiere of Bertolt Brecht's The Guns of Carrar, with a new translation by George Tabori.

In 1964 he spent a year at the Charles Playhouse in Boston collaborating with poet Anne Sexton in the development of her first play, which at the time had a working title of Give Me Your Answer (Do Daisy) (the final title was Tell Me Your Answer True). He also staged the musical She Loves Me, and created a unique musical theater for children, with musical director Joe Raposo, which toured schools in the greater Boston area.

In 1975 Shaktman was one of the founders of the Pittsburgh Public Theater where he served as general and artistic director until 1982. During that time he was responsible for establishing the theater's financial and artistic foundations and directed a majority of productions during PPT's first seven years.

In 1983 Shaktman expanded the application of his theatrical and directorial skills to the business world when he became the founder and president of Shaktman Associates, an executive consulting and training firm. It trains and coaches corporate executives, teachers, professors, and community leaders in the effective preparation and delivery of presentations. (See separate collection, Shaktman Associates Records.) He continues as its president today (2015).
