ABOUT THE PLAY

bellamaboutgraphic1

The Belle of Amherst is an inspiring, moving and highly entertaining biographical portrait of Emily Dickinson, America’s beloved and most eccentric and prolific poet.

Audiences are invited into Emily Dickinson’s home in Amherst, Massachusetts – where she lived as a recluse for the last 30 years of her life.  Once there, they are transported into her private world where life and poetry are seamlessly woven together.

The poems of Emily Dickinson are immortal, and when you see this production, you understand why they are still so vital today!

“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 in last year’s season due to popular demand.”
– Jeffrey Rosenstock, Queens Theatre in the Park, NY
