Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Terror

  •  “A voice that mesmerizes…”
    —NY Daily News,
  •  “What theatre was meant to be.”
    —James O’Connell, Wisconsin

Dark tales and passions are illuminated by theatrical fire in Joshua Kane’s compelling, thrilling and highly interactive performance of Poe’s Tell-Tale Heart, Cask of Amontillado, The Raven and more! Punctuated with lively anecdotes about the author and his swift descent into madness, this performance also encompasses the humor and banter that audiences have always loved in Kane’s performances.

In this swift-paced one-man show, audiences become active partners in creating the world of the play.

A 50-minute version plus Q&A is also available for student matinees.

Innovative promotional opportunities (e.g., a blood drive) and eye-catching graphics make promoting this show a pleasure for presenters. As part of our promotional blitz, we provide study guides and Poe Trivia Contests for local radio stations.

“One of the most magnetic personalities I have ever experienced.”

“The show sold out and had a list of teachers waiting to get in. Coupled with The Imagination Toolkit for middle school students, we played to over 1,300 students that day. Several classes stayed for both performances and had an entertaining, educational and thought-provoking day.”

“Your performance was technically brilliant, expressive, and thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance.”
