Star Trek's Jeffrey Combs Brings Edgar Allan Poe & "Nevermore" To North San Diego County

Star Trek's Jeffrey Combs Brings Edgar Allan Poe & "Nevermore" To North San Diego County

We're extremely thrilled to announce that Jeffrey Combs will be bringing his one man show "Nevermore: An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe" to the North Coast Rep Theater in Solana Beach, California. "Nevermore" is the critically acclaimed play written by Dennis Paoli and directed by Stuart Gordon. We've had the pleasure of seeing "Nevermore" in Austin and can simply say that it's a breathtaking experience. The play is set in 1848 and is loosely based on real events that follows Poe on a cross-country speaking tour fraught with strange occurrences that signal Poe's descent into madness.

Here's what L.A. Weekly had this to say about "Nevermore"; "GO- a gorgeous rendition of a tragic clown whose heart has been cleaved open by loss and regret... beautifully directed by Stuart Gordon" and Metromix reviewed as "... a must see for anyone interested in tales of horror and the supernatural." Set in 1848, Nevermore, written by Dennis Paoli, is loosely based on real events and lets us sit in on one of Poe's recitations that he would've given during one of his many speaking engagements. Through Jeffrey Combs's performance we see the humanity in Poe, as well as his deep capacity for love and a "hint" of madness.

"Nevermore" is running December 9th through the 12th, with shows starting at 7:30pm. Tickets are available here.
