In all honesty, I've forgotten the source I got my info from, possibly a biography or some other material. Probably also relying on talk from acquaintances who were Poe experts themselves, so I'm sorry, I can't source my info. And there's always a possibility that I'm wrong about that.

Entertaining review. But there is a plethora of articles on the web by Poe scholars, fans, etc stating that he did indeed speak with a southern accent. Some say it was a slight southern drawl, but noticeable for sure. And that makes sense to me considering that he grew up in Virginia. You can check it out yourself. Just Google the following: DID EDGAR ALLAN POE SPEAK WITH A SOUTHERN ACCENT. That

I'm a bit late to the party on this article, so it's very possible that no one will ever read this comment(unless they stumble upon this page as I did). I would just like to say you wrote an interesting review, & I would have loved to have been there for the show. My one quarrel is that you say that Poe didn't speak with a southern accent, but I have read numerous articles about

Yeah...like I said, she had a valid point, similar to some of the objections I had with the play. But if memory serves, she did say that the stories of Poe's drinking were the result of Griswold and other postmortem rumormongers, and that's simply not true. It has been documented that Poe had trouble with alcohol. (Maybe she was aware of that, but was so worked up she misspoke...I have

Maybe the woman did or didn't see the "warts and all" comment but why make fun of her if she had an honest objection about the show?

I can see her viewpoint. Poe never appeared on stage drunk. This was the imagination of the writer.

She had a valid objection and shouldn't be scorned for it.

And if I remember correctly there were people in the

Thank you for this wonderful review. I caught the show here in L.A. a few times and really enjoyed it. I was fascinated by your remarks about how Combs portrayed Poe, especially since it was performed mere feet from Mr. Poe's final resting place.

I had a friend there on Sunday who told me that woman during the Q&A was the talk of everyone! Perhaps she didn't read the
