Reviews

“…Clapp lets the deep humanity of the poet subtly emerge from the irrepressible wit of the cultivated curmudgeon…”

“…Dolan's script weaves Frost's poetry and personal views into a seamless piece of theater, which Clapp delivers with authentic New England wit and charm.  Clapp himself hails from New Hampshire, and seems to have been made for this role…a must-see!”- Broadway World

“…We've seen this kind of thing before, of course - Hal Holbrook and Julie Harris pulled the same trick with Mark Twain and Emily Dickinson, respectively, years ago. This Verse Business, however, strikes me as a bit more complex than either of those two one-man (or -woman) warhorses…”” 

- The Hub Review

“…a lovely experience.  Anyone who cares about this great poet - or his work - will want to catch this memorable performance.”
