Great story, Lance. "Comes on a dime"...priceless.

I did a very unorthodox season of Summer Stock in Lancaster County, PA in 1980 that included as its first production. "The Belle of Amherst".

The actress playing ED was competent enough, she just had a very mannered prescense that was way over the top and kinda corny.

I was running lights which as you can imagine didn't involve a lot of heavy lifting, but I still had to stay in the booth and watch the show every night...for a two week run.

Due to this chronic over-exposure, I quickly developed a spot-on imitation of her "version" of Emily Dickinson. Anyway, one afternoon, I'm doing my imitation for two of the other actors in the company who are cracking up, when, and yes, you guessed it, standing directly behind me is the very actress who I was making fun of.

She didn't really speak to me for the remainder of the Summer.

I wonder what happened to that girl...

I agree with your thoughts on Lady D. Now Edna St. Vincent Millay was much more in line with being a great libertine poet worth a passing thought.

OTOH, famed love poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning is another better left out of the imagining:

Poetry doesn't seem to be a great field for Romeos.
