New York Magazine’s Critic’s Pick Renascence is the story of the radical and reckless poet, Edna St. Vincent Millay. At eighteen she writes a staggeringly profound poem that rocks the literary world and transforms this girl from rural Maine into a cause cèlébre. Vincent captivates everyone in her orbit (male and female), and is hero worshipped for her unabashed intellect and frank sensuality. In her New York debut, composer Carmel Dean sets Millay’s words to music in a lush, contemporary score, immersing the audience in this Pulitzer Prize-winning poet’s groundbreaking and provocative point of view that resonates today more than ever.
