On Today’s podcast, I am joined by playwright Michael Whistler, who was commissioned to write Mickle Street for Walnut Street Theatre. This story takes us to a historic visit between notable figures Walt Whitman and Oscar Wilde when Whitman had taken up residence in Camden, New Jersey. This story rides along the edge of a great awakening for Wilde as the tale is told. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT MICKLE STREET
In 1882, the flamboyant, dashing, young Oscar Wilde created a sensation, touring the United States on an extensive lecture tour. While visiting Philadelphia, he planned one side trip, crossing the Delaware to Camden to meet with America’s own Great Grey Poet, Walt Whitman. Join us on Mickle Street and spend an afternoon with two great writers – one at the dawn of his career, the other enjoying his quiet fame. Over a glass of elderberry wine, two great men discuss man’s most aesthetical existence and discover a common sense of beauty.
