Tickets are now on sale for the off-Broadway revival of The Belle of Amherst, William Luce’s one-woman-play that captures the revered career and private life of poet Emily Dickinson. The production, starring stage and screen star Joely Richardson and directed by Steve Cosson, will begin on October 7 at the Westside Theatre.
In The Belle of Amherst, Emily Dickinson’s poems, diaries and letters are woven into an illuminating portrait of the prolific wordsmith. Dickinson’s encounters with close friends and family and her often-amusing observations come to life on stage. The play originally premiered on Broadway in 1976.
The limited engagement will open officially on October 19 and run through January 25, 2015.
