In 1882, Oscar Wilde paid two visits to Walt Whitman at his home in Camden.
The unlikely duo differed dramatically in their priorities, politics and poetics.
Our new musical reveals the awkward, volatile and loving truths of these visits.
These performances are an encore to the sold-out shows in mid-June,
produced in partnership with Whitman at 200: Art and Democracy.
