It gives an intimate glimpse into the poet’s unusual life—her legendary seclusion, the close circle of family, and the men who loved her.
“The Belle of Amherst” was first produced on Broadway in 1976, and starred Julie Harris, for whom it was written. Harris won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play, and a Drama Desk Award nomination for Unique Theatrical Experience.
All tickets for “The Belle of Amherst” at The Open Eye Theater, 960 Main Street, Margaretville are $15. A portion of the proceeds will support the little library in Sybil’s hometown in Georgia. A portion will support our local libraries here in the Catskills, and a portion will support the cultural and educational programs of The Open Eye Theater. A conversation with Sybil Rosen will follow performances on Saturday, September 21 at 7, and Sunday, September 22 at 3. Seating is limited, so reservations are strongly suggested. 845-586-1660; firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets may be purchased online at www.theopeneyetheater.org.
