Why I Envy Baltimore
Baltimore, MD is the world of John Waters, crab cakes, the late and lamented Fanex conventions and Edgar Allan Poe. It is also the location of Westminster Hall, the burial place of Poe and the site of the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum. On January 23 and 24 of this year, Mr. Jeffrey Combs will appear at Westminster Hall as Poe in Dennis Paoli's Nevermore: An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe. The one-man show is directed by Master of Horror Stuart Gordon and is produced for Westminster Hall by museum curator Jeff Jerome and Mark Redfield. Among his myriad credits, Redfield was also responsible for producing the Overdue Funeral of Poe that took place in October of 2009. The event gained worldwide attention and Poe fans from as far away as Vietnam attended.
Ticket information and further details can be found at the Museum's website. Video, courtesy of eRooster.TV.
