Beginning with Moses Hoffheimer’s determination to create RVA’s first integrated theatre post Reconstruction in 1911, continuing through Barksdale Theatre’s commitment to break the back of Virginia’s Jim Crow laws at Hanover Tavern in 1953, and carrying through Theatre IV’s (now Virginia Rep’s) election of Virginia’s first African American Board presidents, professional theatres in Central Virginia have led the way in racial reconciliation.
Bruce Miller is Founding Producer at Virginia Repertory Theatre. He served as Artistic Director of Theatre IV and Barksdale Theatre before overseeing their merger to form Virginia Rep. He currently leads Virginia Rep’s nationally acclaimed Community Health and Wellness programs.
