Joely Richardson Will Slip Into Emily Dickinson’s Shoes in ‘Belle Of Amherst’ Reprise

Joely Richardson, who’s staked out number of stage appearances since the end of her co-starring gig on Nip/Tuck, will play 19th-century American poet Emily Dickinson this fall in an off-Broadway revival of The Belle Of Amherst.

William Luce’s 1976 work was written for Julie Harris, who took home her fifth Tony 3269942Award for the solo show, in which she played Emily and 14 other roles. The show was broadcast by the Public Broadcasting Service, and Harris toured it extensively for years. Director of the revival, which is set to begin performances on October 7th and open on the 19th at the Westside Theatre, is Steve Cosson, who runs The Civilians troupe.
