Perhaps the most widely read American poet of the twentieth century, Robert Frost returns to the stage in A.M. Dolan’s This Verse Business played by the Emmy award winning actor and New Hampshire native Gordon Clapp. Clapp is perhaps best known for his role as Detective Greg Medavoy on NYPD Blue and for his Tony nominated role in the acclaimed Broadway production of Glengarry Glen Ross.
For fifty years, Robert Frost traveled the country giving talks and performing his poems. Partly based on these public appearances, This Verse Business not only gives us Frost, the rascally wit of the platform, but also Frost at home, the private man alluding to his family and speaking about his relationship with art. Frost taught at PSU (then Plymouth Normal School) in 1911 and a statue of him can be found in the middle of campus.
