"THE BELLE OF AMHERST"

Emily Dickinson invites you for tea, secrets, eccentricities and passion! As she says: “Every town must have its local character, and that’s what I am!”

Social restrictions are thrown to the wind and surprises come at every turn. With a startlingly resonant voice, with heart and humor, her writing and values transcend fashion for timelessness. It’s a deliriously private world – and Emily Dickinson is our host!


REVIEWS

“Radiant. . . effervescent. . . with compassion and, well, grace!”
Whitestone Times, NY

“The audience is held in the palm of her hands and she keeps them spellbound.”
Passaic Valley Today, NJ

“The production captured what the theatre is all about – the language, the imagination and the ability of an actor to transport us to another time and place. . . a show that I proudly repeated twice due to popular demand.”
Jeffrey Rosenstock, Queens Theatre in the Park, NY


AUDIENCE QUOTES

“Enchanting, witty — mesmerizing!”

“I have always loved Emily Dickinson. . . the opportunity to catch a rare glimpse of her spirit was an unforgettable experience.”

“As Emily, you exuded joy, revealed heartbreak, and exposed to the audience an indomitable love of words and poetic expression. More than once did I hear that people were going to read Emily’s poems, having been intrigued by their profound simplicity.”
