Zephyr Stage presents "Multitudes"

Friday, May 3rd. Doors at 6:30 pm, Curtains at 7:30 pm. $10 entry, advance tickets available HERE

Multitudes is an original one man play about the great gay father of American poetry, Walt Whitman.

The play was authored by Valerie and Kim Nuzzo of Zephyr Stage, Fruita, Colorado; it runs a little over an hour with no intermission and addresses Whitman’s thoughts on the democratic ideals of inclusion and the importance of every voice, slavery, women’s rights, his fondness for Abraham Lincoln, his sorrow, turmoil and PTSD around his service as a volunteer nurse in Washington, D.C. during the Civil War. All issues being faced in our own time in one form or another.

The play has been performed in a variety of venues throughout the southwestern United States: at traditional theaters, universities, libraries, bookstores and book festivals and in Scotland at the Festival Fringe in Edinburgh. The nation is celebrating the bicentennial of Whitman's birth this year. Multitudes has been selected to be performed at Walt Whitman's birthplace in New York this June 1st.
