Oral #11: Makena Reynolds – The Emily Dickinson Musical

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Andra Harbold

A musical based on the life and work of Emily Dickinson through the lens of those who shaped her legacy. What started as a commemoration of a famous poet’s works turned into the investigation of her living life and how a falling out in the family shaped how we perceive Emily Dickinson in present day. After reading “Lives Like Loaded Guns” and “Open Me Carefully” the dots were connected and a timely musical celebrating women and queer love was created.
