Cummings, Zerbe breathes life into poetry in motion.  An acclaimed actor, starring in films and television series, he brings versatility to all his work. Both a past Broadway performer, and artistic director, it is no question why many universities seek out and praise Zerbe on his helpful lectures. “It’s All done with Mirrors” has played in 100+ venues including the Library of Congress.

He won critical praise for his adaptation of, and performance in, Prelude to Lime Creek taken from the prose and poetry of Joe Henry with singer Greg Barnhill at the Denver Center Theatre Company.
