I'm the literary director and resident dramaturg at Geva Theatre Center in Rochester, NY. Geva Journal is the place to talk about what happens onstage at Geva - how what we see onstage came to be, and how we all react to it - artists and audiences alike. Before arriving in Rochester, I spent 10 years at Theatre Communications Group, the national service organization for the American non-profit theatre field, based in New York City. My background is in dramaturgy. As a dramaturg, my main responsibility is to help paint a full picture of the world being created onstage. Dramaturgs do this for artists primarily by sharing information about the context of the world - the historical, biographical and social background. And we do this for audiences by creating opportunities to more fully engage in the world of the play - through lobby displays, articles online and in print, and conversations. And we ask questions. Lots and lots of questions.
