Watched "The Belle of Amherst" online, April 17, 2021, and enjoyed the production alot. It was the first dealings I've had with Emily Dickenson since being in high school over 55 years ago. A great production and I must give a very large THANKS to Theatre Jacksonville for presenting the program, and to Vet Tix for making it available to me. It meant a lot, and has me wanting to look up some of Emily Dickenson's works to bring back some memories of many years ago.
Wow, Theatre Jacksonville does not disappoint! Sinda Nichols put on a stunning one-woman show! She is extremely talented, and she truly kept us engaged throughout the show! I never realized Emily Dickinson dealt with so much anxiety, but I guess the best works always come from personal experience. It was great learning more about her personal life. I have read, heard, and admired Emily Dickinson’s poetry most of my life, but I never really took time to learn about her. I really appreciate the use of technology to allow us to “attend” at our convenience! We could really enjoy a great deal more events presented this way! That would be easier on the performers as well … they perform one time, record, and livestream … you may be onto something there! Much gratitude and respect for Theatre Jacksonville for continuing to provide the best quality entertainment, educating the public, and providing services to Veterans like myself! Thank you so much!
