Some people are just born to play a certain role. Karloff was the monster. Lugosi was Dracula. Jeffrey Combs? This is a man who was born to play Edgar Allan Poe. One of the most incredible times I’ve ever had was when we saw Nevermore in LA last month. It was literally the closest to ever spending an evening with Poe we modern day folks could hope for. Now fans in Maryland are about to join in on the experience.
According to the LA Times “Nevermore,” which ran at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood earlier this year, will have its East Coast premiere in Baltimore at the Westminster Hall, which also happens to be the site of Poe’s grave. Performances of the play, which was written by Dennis Paoli, will take place Jan. 23 and 24, and will be co-presented by the Edgar Allan Poe House.”
Can you possibly think of anything more fitting? If you’re anywhere near this area … even hours away … do yourself a favor and go. Nevermore is nothing short of a must see!
