Belle of Amherst

Feb 16, 2018 at 7:30pm

The one woman show, made famous by legendary actress Julie Harris, tells the life story of famous poet Emily Dickinson. The audience is invited into the world of Emily Dickinson, with all of its secrets, eccentricities and passions. In her own words, Emily says “Every town must have its local character – and that’s what I am!”

Met with surprises at every turn, she puts pen to paper and overcomes daunting challenges. At times, she is compelled to “stop the world” as creativity starts – and her poems come to life in the unique voice that defied the conventions of her time.  It’s a deliriously private world – and Emily Dickinson is our host!​
