Visiting Writers Series and GPS
Co-Sponsor "Behind the Broken Words"

Posted February 26, 2001

HOLLAND -- The Hope College Great Performance Series and Visiting Writers Series will co-sponsor "Behind the Broken Words," an evening of 20th century poetry, drama and comedy, on Monday, March 12, at 8 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Theatre.

Emmy award-winners Anthony Zerbe and Roscoe Lee Browne perform what the "New York Times" has called a "rhapsodic flight of words and images," honoring the works of writers such as William Butler Yeats, Richard Wright, e.e. cummings, Dylan Thomas, Seamus Heaney and Jean Giraaudoux.

"Poets take the feelings that we all have, and articulate them," Zerbe said. "When they are beautifully articulated, somehow that makes them accessible to everyone who's ever been in their presence."

Browne has also received a Tony nomination, and narrated two Oscar-nominated films, including "Babe." He has appeared in numerous theatre, movie and television roles, and has received three Emmy nominations in addition to his Emmy for work on "The Cosby Show."

Zerbe is recognized as one of the country's most versatile actors with extensive credits in film, television, and theatre. His numerous film appearances have ranged from "Cool Hand Luke" to "Star Trek IX: Insurrection." He won an Emmy award for his role in the popular series, "Harry-O," and recently completed filming "Total Recall," a television movie for Showtime. He also performs a one-man show focusing on the work of e.e. cummings.

Ticket prices are $12.50 for adults, $10.50 for senior citizens, and $5 for Hope students and children under 12. The ticket office, located in the theatre lobby of the DeWitt Center, opens for Great Performance Series season subscribers on Monday and Tuesday, March 5-6, and for the general public on Wednesday, March 7. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door.

The ticket office will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Additional ticket information may be obtained by calling (616) 395-7890.

The Knickerbocker Theatre is located at 86 East 8th Street in downtown Holland.
