Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Sinda Nichols in her “masterful performance” as Emily Dickinson in “The Belle of Amherst”. Find out why Emily proclaimed, “Take all away from me, but leave me ecstasy!”
Ms. Nichols first performed, “The Belle of Amherst” in December 2010, and has toured the show at multiple theaters in and around the First Coast, the United States and in Ireland. Frequently her performances have benefited local Friends of the Library in honor of Emily Dickinson’s extraordinary contribution to literature.
Wherever Ms. Nichols performs, audiences have one thing to say about her “energizing and uplifting” performance as Emily Dickinson, “Don’t miss it! Do whatever you have to do to see it!” Her “spellbinding performance” takes the audience on an unforgettable journey over 40 years. Bursting with humor, wisdom and enormous energy, “The Belle of Amherst” reveals the many secrets of our most enigmatic poet. Ms. Nichols brings not only Emily to life, but also over a dozen of the poet’s family, friends and loves. This “exquisitely intelligent” performance leaves the audience, “seduced, captivated and uplifted.”
William Luce’s extraordinary play weaving together letters and poems won Julie Harris a Tony Award in 1977. Unique and intimate, this play invites the audience into the home of Emily Dickinson’s parlor as she lifts the veil on the greatest joys and deepest sorrows of her life.
