Dark tales and passions are illuminated by theatrical fire in this interactive, tour-de-force performance of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado, The Raven, and more. Punctuated with lively anecdotes about the author and his swift descent into madness, the performance also encompasses the humor and banter audiences have come to expect in Kane’s performances. The swift-paced, one-man show allows audience members to become active partners in creating the world of the play.

Kane is a classically trained actor who studied with Stella Adler, Bobby Lewis, the National Shakespeare Conservatory, and Marcel Marceau. He is a member of the Actors’ Equity Association and has toured internationally. Kane’s work as a voiceover actor can be heard on radio and television in spots for clients ranging from Pillsbury to the Central Intelligence Agency. His fascination with the old-time radio dramas of Orson Welles and Vincent Price inspired him to reinvent “Theatre of the Mind” for a new generation.

A Q&A discussion with Kane follows the performance.
