Description

“A voice that mesmerizes…” —NY Daily News

 

Dark tales and passion are illuminated by theatrical fire in Joshua Kane’s compelling 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 encompasses the humor and banter that audiences have always loved in Kane’s performances. In this swift-paced one-man show (90 minutes, no intermission), audiences become active partners in creating the world of the play.

 

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.

 

A 50-minute version plus Q&A is also available for student matinees, which are often the foundation for Kane’s dynamic residencies.

 

“I have found it difficult over my twenty-plus years of presenting, to find opportunities that are both engaging and rewarding for junior high/middle school students, and this program did the trick. They were engaged both with the work and with you as a performer, and the blending of those two elements held the rapt attention of a challenging age-range of audience members. I would not hesitate to enthusiastically recommend this program. —Joseph A. Ferlo, Grand Opera House, WI

 

“If you have forgotten how good it can be to listen to a real storyteller and be swept up in a story, . . . you need to listen to Joshua Kane, a man whose voice is an instrument of delightful terror.—Neil Gaiman
