Every creator of theater has faced the challenge of producing their work; this panel features speakers with a combined century of experience in bringing not only their own works to the stage, but also forming new companies focused on producing pieces ancient and modern. West End star Chris Van Cleave (Les Miserábles, Chess) moderates.
An ever-evolving production blending literature, theatre, music, and dance, The Poe Project weaves together some of Poe‘s most famous stories and poems exploring the comedy and darkness in his works. Featuring such classics as The Imp of the Perverse, The Cask of Amontillado, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Bells, Annabel Lee, and The Raven, this productions blends them seamlessly into one incredible evening. First conceived and performed in 2006, it has since been presented at Les Fêtes Théâtrales du Suroît, Quebec, Canada; Rencontres Internationales de Théâtre, Liege, Belgium; Tarptautinį Teatrų Forumąs, Vilnius, Lithuania; Midtown International Theater Festival, NYC and Aula de Teatro da USC Festival Internacional de Teatro, Santiago de Compostela, Spain to critical acclaim and recognition.
