For an evening of chuckles and unabashed silliness, go see The Edgar Allan Show at The Two Roads Theater. Ari Stidham (writer/director/composer) has put together a show like none other, based on the life and works of writer Edgar Allan Poe...

The incredibly talented and funny cast is spoofing our hero, Edgar... Great fun for all ages and just in time for Halloween.

It’s a breathtakingly excellent comedy. Bold, original, coy, so quick you could blink and miss it kind of comedy. Subtle in a loud way, so effortless you just know this took a huge amount of crafting.

Paul Myrvold - Theatre Notes

With sublime silliness, writer/director/song writer and performer Ari Stidham creates a Python-esque spoof of the most famous works of that dark-hearted American scribbler, Edgar Allan Poe. Compulsively absurd, the players (Kimia Behpoornia, Jordan R. Coleman, and Nika H. Mabson), shred, and, in their own way, truly honor the great American writer with studied ineptitude. Creator Stidham joins the cast on stage, briefly, about two-thirds of the way through the eighty-minute show and delivers some pretty slick singing. The fifth member of the cast, co-producer Jimmy McCammon, creates chaos up in the booth with lights and sound. The company does damage to the history of Poe’s life and lost loves while satirizing The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Fall of the House of Usher and more.
