Publisher's Summary

Jeffrey Combs gives an electrifying performance in Nevermore, An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe. Recorded before a live audience in Boston, Poe, with all of his passions, foibles, aspirations, and demons, comes vividly to life in this bravura, one-person play. Playwright Dennis Paoli expertly weaves Poe’s actual words, from letters and essays, with select poems and tales, and let’s Poe tell his own story. With Combs’ full-blooded performance, Poe is brought to exciting life - imagine that you are in the audience listening to Poe give one of his famous lectures in 1848, and on display is Poe’s humor, sadness, genius, ego, and indomitable spirit! 

Director Stuart Gordon guides the proceedings with a gentle touch, revealing the humanity, the triumph, and the tragedy of America’s great poet and teller of tales, Edgar Allan Poe.
