Drawn directly from Robert Frost's lectures, interviews, and letters, "This Verse Business" is both an illuminating portrait of the man and an entertaining distillation of one poet's body of work and his writing methods. Gordon Clapp brings Frost to life in this captivating testament to the intrinsic value of poetry and the arts. Audiences will leave moved and inspired.
Perhaps the most widely read poet of the twentieth century in the United States, Robert Frost returns to the stage in A.M. Dolan's, "This Verse Business." Played by Emmy winning actor Gordon Clapp (NYPD Blue's Detective Greg Medavoy), Frost's poetry is heard afresh; and his great wit witnessed once more in Clapp's critically acclaimed performance.
On Friday, April 14th and Saturday, April 15th at 8:00 PM in Johnson Theater at the University of New Hampshire, the UNH Opera Program will proudly present the quintessential America opera, Aaron Copland’s The Tender Land. There is no composer who devoted himself more to the subject of America than Copland. The Tender Land, his only opera, deeply and beautifully presents those elements that truly define American character; rugged individualism, hard work, family, dreams, brokenness, healing and a landscape broad and beautiful. These are all set against the enduring American theme of “otherness” and prejudice in a Society created by immigrants arriving to a land of new promise.

That building and seven boxes of books are what planted the roots for a great institution. Throughout the years UNH has been a part of some many great moments in history. Come and join the journey that is this original play.
