Great event. 90 minutes of Edgar Allen Poe right before your eyes.
Well written presenting wonderful bits of Poe's stories and poetry while while showing Poe's complex character. Direction is also good and keeps suspense and action flowing.
Jeffery Combs is amazing. He is Poe and portrays all the emotions you would expect from such an author. A real treat!

My husband is from Richmond, Virginia, as was Edgar Allen Poe, so was very familiar with his back story as there is a lot of Poe lore to be found there. He found the character in NEVERMORE authentic to Poe's time in history and to all the stories...continued

An evening with Edgar Allan Poe
Prose, Poetry and Perversion
Written by Dennis Paoli
Directed by Stuart Gordon
(the writer/director team behind cult classics_
Re-Animator _and From Beyond)
Nevermore has returned to the Steve Allen Theater after it’s popular, extended run in 2009! Jeffrey Combs, the star of Re-Animator, From Beyond, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine / Enterprise plays the brilliant but tormented American author in this chilling play. Set in 1848, Nevermore is loosely based on real events and follows Poe on a cross-country speaking tour fraught with strange occurrences that signal Poe’s descent into madness.
- * Nevermore – An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe is a dramatic recreation of the readings that Poe performed during the final years of his short life. Set in 1848, a year after the death of his beloved young wife Virginia, and at the height of his fame as the author of “The Raven”, we watch as he is undone by his own self-destructive tendencies, or in his words: “the imp of the perverse”.
Combs and Gordon began their collaboration in 1985 on the cult film classic Re-Animator and have worked together on many movies since including _From Beyond, T_he Pit and the Pendulum, Fortress and most recently Edmond based on David Mamet’s play. Jeffrey is also well known to audiences for his frequent television appearances on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Enterprise and The 4400.
