Ensemble for the Romantic Century (Eve Wolf, Executive Artistic Director) is proud to announce that Angelica Page would star in the title role Because I Could Not Stop: An Encounter with Emily Dickinson.

Kicking off the 2018 – ‘19 season, ERC’s 18th,  Because I Could Not Stop: An Encounter with Emily Dickinson is written by James Melo and directed by Donald T. Sanders. Performances will begin September 15th with Opening Night set for September 27th.  This limited Off-Broadway engagement runs through October 21st only. Performances will be in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between Dyer and 10th Avenues).

Live chamber music will be performed by Victoria Lewis (violin), Mélanie Clapiès (violin), Chieh-Fan Yiu (viola), Ari Evan (cello), joined by ERC Co-Artistic Director Max Barros on piano and soprano Kristina Bachrach.

 Because I Could Not Stop: An Encounter with Emily Dickinson will have scenic and costume design by Vanessa James, lighting design by Beverly Emmons, and projection design by David Bengali. ERC’s 2018-’19 Season is cast by Geoff Josselson, CSA.

Emily Dickinson was a woman ahead of her time.  While she produced some of the most haunting and visionary poetry in the American cannon, she refused to be confined by the expectations of a 19th century woman.   Using her own words, ERC’s  Because I Could Not Stop explores the inner life of an artist whose intellectual curiosity and emotional intensity are only rivaled by her fierce defiance of literary and social authority.   “This is my letter to the world that never wrote back to me.”  -Emily Dickinson

A native New Yorker who lives in Los Angeles, Angelica Page most recently starred on Broadway in Gore Vidal’s The Best Man (Tony nomination for Best Revival) and in Turning Page, a new self penned solo play about her mother, the legendary late actress Geraldine Page.  Other theater: As Sylvia Plath in Edge (Outer Critics Circle nomination for Best Solo Performance & New Times Award for Best Actress), Sideman (Tony Award for Best Play, Helen Hayes Award for Best Actress), August: Osage County (Tony Award for Best Play, Helen Hayes Award Nomination for Best Actress), Anna Christie (Tony Award for Best Revival).
