A Woman Of The World - 2019 - Off-Broadway

Best known as Emily Dickinson's posthumous editor, Mabel Loomis Todd is a woman of the world. Priding herself on being an inspired conversationalist, she invited scandal by enjoying a glass of wine in mixed company, and she certainly wasn't afraid to expose her ankles in a dress. Now in her 70s and living on Hog Island in Maine, the accomplished journalist and naturalist regales us with tales of her storied life, spilling secrets and revealing the true nature of her relationship with one of America’s most celebrated poets.



Pulitzer Prize finalist Rebecca Gilman's world premiere play is brought to the stage in this insightful and impassioned tour-de-force performance by one of theater’s most beloved performers, Kathleen Chalfant.

Hello, Masters of Sex fans! Let's get to recapping the fifth episode of this fantastic season. This episode packed in a few (what I like to call) 'Oh, snap' moments. The title of the episode is called 'Giants' and I'd say that it's aptly titled. It's almost one full hour clocking in at 55 minutes so let's try to hit every minute.
