Rousuck's Review: "Edgar Allan Poe's 'Blood, Sweat and Fears'"
Next on Midday, a visit with our peripatetic theater critic, J. Wynn Rousuck, who joins us each week with her reviews of Maryland's regional stage.
Today she's back, just in time for Halloween, to tell us about Edgar Allan Poe's 'Blood Sweat and Fears,' the first live stage production by the National Edgar Allan Poe Theatre, the non-profit company that produces Poe's works for educational and mass media presentations, including a series of podcasts for WYPR called Poe Theater on the Air.
The new show, directed byJay D. Brock, features dramatizations of three of the master of macabre's well-known short stories:“Berenice,” “A Predicament,” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.” It's being presented on stage through FPX Eventsat the Flagship Cinema multiplex in Dundalk, which is located at 7938 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21224.
