By A.M. Dolan
Starring NYPD Blue’s Gordon Clapp
Directed by Gus Kaikkonen
October 5 – 28
For nearly fifty years, Robert Frost “barded” around the country with his poetry, dry wit, and “promises to keep,” performing some of the greatest verse in the English canon and sharing his “wild surmises” on religion, science, poetic form, whatever was on his mind. Starring Emmy winning and Tony nominated actor Gordon Clapp, This Verse Business not only gives us Frost, the rascally wit of the platform, but also a personal view of Frost at his cabin.
Running Time: Approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
Advisory: Ages 12 and up.
