An intriguing glimpse into the tortured psyche of a brilliantly creative man and the women who inspired him. Come hear the poetry and stories of Edgar Allan Poe, and the music of Johnny Mercer and others!
“What a night! I was blown away by Poe. The juxtaposition of his words and the music was just great in my estimation. Cobb was Poe! Finn did a great job jumping from one woman to another and belting out the songs. If I were rich I would have Bennetta and Ryan play for me one afternoon a week just for my pleasure. Thanks for an exquisite evening. ”
