Unlaunch’d Voices - An Evening with Walt Whitman
Performed by Stephen Collins
Unlaunch’d Voices - An Evening with Walt Whitman opens with the elderly Whitman on the evening of his seventieth birthday. The audience is a visitor in his room as he prepares for his birthday celebration. Whitman begins to reminisce and to question his success as a man and a poet. He tells us his work has proved to be "less than a failure...." Join us for this poignant telling of Whitman’s life and poetry. Stephen Collins grew up in Cambridge, and received a BA in Literature from UMass Boston. After twenty plus years in a sales career, he is back doing what he truly loves - performing and teaching. Enthusiastically praised by audiences throughout New England, this is a performance not to be missed. Free and open to all.
