Walt Whitman play coming to Zumbrota

September 9, 2017 GMT

ZUMBROTA — “Leaves of Grass — Illuminated,” a play about poet Walt Whitman, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 15 at Crossings at Carnegie, 320 East Ave. Zumbrota.

The one-man play was written and is performed by Patrick Scully, a Twin Cities actor. The play focuses on Whitman as a ground-breaking artist, especially in the ways he broached the topic of same-sex love.

Originally, Scully wrote the play as a large-cast show, which debuted in 2014 in Minneapolis. He developed the one-man version in 2015 and presented it in New York and Minneapolis last year.

Tickets are $14 in advance, $17 the day of the show, available at crossingsatcarnegie.com and at 507-732-7616.
