Veteran actor and director Tom Aposporos narrates "Frost, Whitman and Langston Hughes: Poems About America," which captures the breadth of the American experience with quintessential examples of the power of poetry. The production looks at America from a variety of poetic lenses: Whitman’s ecstatic Civil War-era odes to our land and people, Frost’s meditative and philosophical homage to traditional New England values and Hughes rhythmic, pounding and incisive personification of the Black experience in America. Readings will be interspersed with narration exploring the poems, their meanings, and why they are as prescient now as when they were written.
