11 year-old Edgar Allan has one goal: to be the most remarkable boy at boarding school. He has only one obstacle: Edgar Allan. A manic lullabye inspired by the childhood and short stories of Edgar Allan Poe.
I am a huge fan of Edgar Allan Poe’s work. In fact I have a book of his complete works. While the show’s plotline was wonderfully dark, I never really thought of Poe being so loud spoken. The actress playing did play a very convincing 11-year-old alcoholic boy, with a beautiful singing voice. Also I love the homage the made to one of Edgar Allen’s stories at the end of the show (The cask of amontillado). If you love dark stories, definitely put this on your must see Fringe list.
