'Rhapsody in Verse: The Void Of Great Poets On Time, Nature & Love'



Text Size

Performed poetry is even older than theater, and Robert González imagines and recreates what poetry was like delivered from a stage to an audience – just the pure language and people to listen to it.

Town Players is pleased announce they will welcome Robert González in a solo stage performance of great and beloved poems on Sunday, July 12, at 7:30 pm, at The Little Theatre, 18 Orchard Hill Road in Newtown.

Included in “‘Rhapsody in Verse: The Void Of Great Poets On Time, Nature & Love” will be works by Shakespeare, Keats, Blake, Dickinson, Whitman, Donne, Hopkins, Frost, Tennyson, Shelley and others. The performance will be followed by refreshments and an opportunity for discussion.

After graduating from Andrew Warde High School in Fairfield, Mr González went on to Boston University for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, the University of Wisconsin-Madison for an MFA, and the University of South Florida for a PhD. He is currently an Associate Professor of Speech, Theatre, and Dance at the University of Tampa, where he directs as well as teaches.

Join Town Players for this special evening, and revisit the poems you have read and loved. Admission is free of charge, although donations to defray expenses are welcome.
