About This Show

The Blue Heron Theatre presents Jewel Seehaus-Fisher’s play celebrating the meteoric relationship between a young Walt Whitman and newspaper columnist Fanny Fern. Set in 1856 in New York City, Fanny & Walt traces the arc of this fascinating but doomed attraction between a strong, vivid woman who longs to recapture the passion of her youth and a seductive boy-genius who yearns to spin life into poetry with little regard for doing the conventionally right thing.
