Nevermore: An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe

This is a one-man play by Jeffrey Combs, who you might know him from episodes of various Star Trek franchises and from the Re-Animator, which is probably coming to the Belcourt because it looks awesome.

But I digress – Combs will be performing as Poe for the bicentennial of Poe’s birth. He’ll recite “The Raven” and other selections including The Tell-Tale Heart and Annabel Lee. This is going to be serious. No, really! Combs performed Nevermore at the Lincoln Center in NYC on Halloween, and they don’t just let any schmuck do that sort of thing. Combs even looks like Poe. He’s gotten good reviews from this, so it’s a must-see for Poe fans.

This event will take place in the main public library (the one downtown). There will be a reception with light refreshments beginning at 6:15.
