An illuminating and entertaining portrait of the great American poet Robert Frost, This Verse Business, stars Emmy-winning actor Gordon Clapp as Frost. Based on Frost’s writing and recordings and told in Robert Frost’s folksy yet penetrating style, this one-man play is full of poetry, wit and “promises to keep.” Gordon Clapp won an Emmy for his performance as detective Greg Medavoy on NYPD Blue. He won the Drama Desk Award and was nominated for a Tony Award for his role as instigator Dave Moss in the 2005 Tony-winning Broadway revival of David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross. Film credits include Flags of Our Fathers, The Game Plan, The Grind Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and John Sayles’ Eight Men Out, Matewan, and Return of the Secaucus Seven. Other TV credits include Damages, Deadwood, Cold Case, Without a Trace and HBO’s Taking Chance.
Sharing the work of Robert Frost on stage has been a long-time goal of Gordon Clapp. “I grew up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire,” says Clapp. “When I went away to school in Connecticut I took Robert Frost with me and he brought me home. More than thirty years ago I promised myself to bring him back to life on stage.”
