This summer, local freelance writer Jonathan Everitt spent a LOT of time at Geva. We had invited five writers of new work on Geva’s stages this season to spend a couple of days apiece in Rochester, getting to know our staff, our community, and the stories that Rochester has to tell. And these visits gave audiences an opportunity to get to know the writers on a personal basis, to see the people behind the ideas onstage. Jonathan spent a little time with each of the writers while they were here. Then, they all came back during our Festival of New Theatre in October, and Jonathan was there too. He wrote a great article about what he calls “Geva’s Bold Experiments” for this month’s Rochester Magazine.
Here’s the first part of the article: Behind the Curtain Rochester Magazine pt 1.
