The Belle of Amherst
Sacramento, CA 95814
Jackie Vanderbeck portrays poet Emily Dickinson in this intimate and thoughtful one-woman show. Under the direction of Janis Stevens—who knows a thing or two about one-woman shows—Vanderbeck relies on subtle nuances to embody a literary genius who was also a self-acknowledged social oddball.
