The social network for Star Trek Fans!
We’re pleased to announce the third episode of our podcast called, “Life After Trek” featuring none other than Jeffrey Combs. Many of you know Jeffrey from his many and varied characters on Deep Space Nine, Enterprise, & Voyager. He's one of our absolute favorite actors worthy of his own Trek series, where in our minds, he plays every single character. We had the pleasure of spending time with Jeffrey while he was here in Austin during Fantastic Fest. He and "Re-animator" director Stuart Gordon were in town for showings of many of the films that they have collaborated on over the years. Jeffrey was also here to preform his one man show "Nevermore: An Evening With Edgar Allan Poe". We had the opportunity to catch a showing of "Nevermore" and can truly say that it was a breathtaking experience.
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.
If you would like the opportunity to see "Nevermore", you can catch a showing at Creation Entertainment's "Weekend of Horrors" con coming soon. Check out more information below.
