Coastal Virginia Magazine: The Generic Brand

Norfolk's Generic Theater has been a destination place for new, edgy and experimental theater since 1981. The low-budget black box company was originally started by the city's Parks and Recreation Department, and is currently in the middle of its 35th season, now housed in the recesses of Chrysler Hall.

My Coastal Virginia Magazine feature article on the history of this unique and ever-evolving theater company is now available online. Read it here.

(Note: The print headline of the article is "The Generic Brand.")
