Stephen Collins portrays the poet and free spirit Walt Whitman through his poetry, anecdotes, stories, and memories. 

"By the end of the play, the audience comes away feeling as if they know Whitman, feeling as if they have just had a conversation with the poet."    Rebecca Lamet – York County Coast Star

Stephen Collins grew up in Cambridge and received a BA in Literature from UMass Boston. After twenty plus years in a sales career, he is back doing what he truly loves – performing and teaching.
