“Cate’s Mastermind has been a powerful force in keeping me on track with my numerous projects and just generally encouraging me to believe in what I’ve chosen to do – produce, write, and support theater as a professional.
Her meetings offer insight and advice from colleagues who are pursuing the same goals from different angles. Cate is organized, a smart and caring listener, and is able to sum up my sometimes rambling thoughts in a way that helps me stay accountable to my goals.
I’m so glad I joined forces with her!”

“Cate Cammarata’s Mastermind groups are the perfect blend of support, accountability, sage advice and authentic cheerleading. She leads quietly but with great certainty. I find myself reaching goals and going beyond.
This group has been invaluable to my progress as a writer and as a creative.”

“Cate leads her Mastermind group with attentiveness and skill. Her observations are insightful and she asks the right questions, bringing everyone together to share constructive feedback. Each person gains clarity as well as new ideas, goals and ways to tackle problems.
The evening always ends on an up-note, everyone energized, confident, ready and prepared to take on the world!”
“Casting and producing a play from Los Angeles was very challenging. Luckily the festival sent us a list of artists in all areas of production who had signed up as wanting to be a part of the festival. I took some serious time doing research on a few different directors and decided on Cate Cammarata, who literally saved my life.
She attended the auditions and has had constant communication with me about the process. With her guidance we were able to cast the play with a group of actors that I am very excited to see on stage telling this story. The rehearsal process thus far has been a lot of work, with myself and the director making sure that the story is solid and that we understand the vision. It’s been great, and I can’t wait to keep going.”
Memories of the Game, SHE NYC Festival
“We have had the great pleasure of working with Cate Cammarata as a dramaturg on our original musical.
Cate is extremely thoughtful and thorough in her process and we were highly impressed and grateful for the amount of time and care she took in evaluating our work. Her astute questions about the script have lead us to a more defined story arc, featuring characters who are now properly fleshed out.
The experience has made us realize that when you’re so close to the material it is sometimes difficult to see where problems exist. Bringing in an outside voice as insightful and experienced as Cate helped us discover where more chances should be taken and where clarification was needed. We left each session feeling confident and excited to dig further into the script to create the best show possible.”
Book writer for Dear Prospective Student
“Cate Cammarata has the instincts of a Sherpa guide, leading you through the unchartered world of your play. She helps you to identify your world, unclutter it and strengthen the narrative so your characters can reach their summit. And she achieves this, as both a dramaturg and a director, using her deft interpersonal skills of nuance, persuasion, respect, reason and illustration.”
Entanglement, Broadway Bound Theater Festival
“Cate Cammarata provided insightful, detailed notes on my new, original, modern musical. Her mastery of classical drama enables her to reinforce foundational truths about theatre and story, all the while proffering notes and choices which easily reflect the attitudes of today’s audiences.
Highly recommended! Thank you, Cate!“
