Thank you for taking this survey on behalf of

Your experience and insights are highly valuable to us!

 

In this next step in the Moonshot process, we look closely at specific past play and season selections. The survey is in two parts, both linked below. Start with Part One, focused on individual play vetting and selection. After you have completed Part One, continue to Part Two - Season Selection.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

 

Your responses to both parts must be completed no later than
 

To save your responses, you must press the save button at the end of each section. You may return to any question and edit your response. You may also exit either part of the survey and return to complete it anytime through

Here  are the links:

Important!

 

  • SAVE OFTEN! 

    • Anytime you leave the survey (or your computer or device), press one of the save buttons. If you lose your connection, even briefly, you’ll lose any unsaved work.
      Note: each save button saves all data entered  since the last save. Generally you’ll see a confirmation message, but not always as the program periodically autosaves. The way to confirm data has been saved if you don’t receive the confirm is to refresh your screen. If you see your data, it has been saved.

  • ​We highly recommend completing this on a computer or tablet if possible (vs. smart phone). 

    • The survey uses a lot of memory and may take a few moments to load or switch between play selections.

    • The stronger the Internet connection (and faster your processor), the smoother the interface will be.

    • Depending on your connection, you may experience some delays in keyboard responsiveness. Should this present a real problem for you, please contact Kristin and we’ll figure out a work around.

  • Don’t share your link! Each is individualized and another respondent using your link will overwrite all your responses.

 

Please email or text Kristin (at kristin@ensembleconsulting.org or 708-275-7126) with any questions or technical issues.

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PART ONE: PLAY SELECTION

 

We have selected seven productions for closer study: every play in the most recently completed season plus several others that either outperformed or underperformed expectations by artistic and/or non-artistic measures.

 

To navigate, select the first play in the “Name of Show” drop down list found top of page. Work your way through the question set for that play. You may skip questions that don’t seem relevant, or for which you don’t have an answer. Once you have completed the question set, return to the drop down menu and select the next play in the list.

 

At the end of each play’s question set is a place to indicate whether you have completed questions for that play.

 

Now let’s start!
