Description: The Ware Center and Lancaster Literary Guild present Poet and Soul: An adaptation of Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself," by A. Bryan Humphrey on March 28. The reading for two voices, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Ware Center, will be performed by Humphrey and Jane Ridley.
About the Event: Humphrey's adaption of Whitman's "Song of Myself" creates a dialogue of two distinct voices: The voice of Whitman, the poet, and the voice of Whitman's soul. The lovely interplay utilizes the lines from the poem and brings it to life. Ridley, well known for her many leading roles at the Fulton Theatre, will read the lines referencing Whitman's soul. Humphry, actor, director, writer and theater teacher, will portray Whitman as the poet.
