Playing Our Part in Taos
Taos Onstage presents Dear Elizabeth, a touching play that highlights the long and intimate friendship between two great American poets, Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop.
There will be three performances of Dear Elizabeth, on July 26, 27, and 28 at 7:00 p.m. at SOMOS, 108 Civic Plaza Dr., in Taos. Tickets cost $12 and may be obtained online at www.taosonstage.com or by calling 575-224-4587.
Bishop and Lowell were devoted friends and passionate admirers of each other's work. The poets bridged the geographical distance that separated them by exchanging more than 400 letters as their careers and lives blossomed and foundered. These letters have become a great literary treasure.
Playwright Sarah Ruhl has distilled from this voluminous correspondence a concise selection to create the play Dear Elizabeth. Aside from a few of the poets' best-known poems, the play consists entirely of writings from the letters. In the production, the actors read or recite from the correspondence, which begins shortly after the poets' meeting in 1947 and concludes only with Lowell's sudden death, from a heart attack in a taxi, in 1977. Beautiful passages abound.
Dear Elizabeth is a moving portrait of a deep and enduring friendship.
Directed by Karla Eoff, the production features veteran local actors Jim Kristofic as Robert Lowell and Renea Been as Elizabeth Bishop. Helen Rynaski is assistant director and sound designer.
Jim Kristofic plays Robert Lowell and Renea Been plays Elizabeth Bishop in the Taos Onstage production of Dear Elizabeth.
