As Poe’s professional fame rose, his personal life collapsed. Lucien Douglas performs Eleonora, Tell–Tale Heart, To Helen, and of course, The Raven. Meanwhile he recounts how Poe started life as a wealthy Southern aristocrat but died shortly after being found comatose on the streets of Baltimore… dressed in another man’s clothes.
Lucien Douglas is now a professor of theater at the University of Texas, Austin. Previously, he acted in hundreds of roles on Broadway, Off-Broadway, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and others. Television and film credits include parts in Texas Ranger, One Life to Live, Miss Congeniality, Man of the House and more.
