    THE MIDNIGHT MATINEE - "Valdemar" - Based On The Story By Poe (Ep 23-8)

    THE MIDNIGHT MATINEE - "Valdemar" - Based On The Story By Poe (Ep 23-8)

    THE MIDNIGHT MATINEE - "Valdemar" - Based On The Story By Poe (Ep 23-8)

    “Valdemar“ stars the voice talents of Jennifer Rouse as “Elmira Valdemar”, J.R. Lyston as “Ernest Valdemar” and Mark Redfield as “Harlan Hurlock”.

    The production was written and directed by Mark Redfield, inspired by a story by Edgar Allan Poe.

    Original Music and Sound Design by Jennifer Rouse.

    Redfield takes his inspiration for the script from the Edgar Allan Poe short story “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar”, and sets his story in a dreamlike urban city in the early 20th century. A world where the rich and pampered collide with the side-show carnival huckster and con-man. A world where the greedy and selfish fall victim to their own desires, with horrifying consequences. For no man, or woman, can truly escape death… Poe’s original story “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar”, from which this audio play is inspired, was published in 1845. A work of horror fiction, it is also something of a hoax, as the story was originally published without claiming it was fictional, and readers believed the events described, of a man called Valdemar mesmerized at the point of death and upon coming out of the trance, devolving into a puddle of putrification. It was published simultaneously in “The American Review” and “Broadway Journal”, December 1845. Many readers thought the events to be true, until Poe admitted otherwise in his “Marginalia”. Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote to Poe to commend him on his talent for “making horrible improbabilities seem near and familiar”. The most well-known film adaptation appears in Roger Corman’s “Tales of Terror” (1962) starring Vincent Price and Basil Rathbone. Redfield Arts Audio presents “Valdemar”, written and directed by Mark Redfield.

    When we recorded Eugene O’Neill’s “Anna Christie”, Mark Redfield and Mackenzie Menter took a break to talk about the project, and Mackenzie’s work as an actor.

    Mackenzie is a young New York-based actor and singer who voices Virginia in “The Canterville Ghost”, and narrated “The Gift of the Magi” and a collection of children’s stories for Redfield Arts Audio. Just two actors shooting the breeze. As you do.

    In the podcast, we hear moments from our audio production of “Anna Christie”, and the debut of Mackenzie singing "Leave Her Johnny", the theme song from “Anna Christie”.

    In this audio drama adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s famous 1892 tale of a woman’s decent into madness while submitting to her doctor-husband’s “rest cure”, the themes emerge vibrantly that caused the original short story to be rediscovered and hailed as a classic of short horror fiction in the 1970s. It’s powerful message retains its clearness and strength to this day. Recorded before a live audience at Baltimore Theatre Project on Halloween night, 2013.

    THE POE FAMILY COMES FROM IRELAND!
    It begins, as far back as can be reliably traced, to Edgar’s great-great-grandfather David Poe in the town of Dring, County Cavan, Ireland, about 75 miles north of Dublin. (There are going to be a few “Davids” in our brief re-cap, so get your score cards ready!)

    There is no record of David Poe’s birth, only of his death in 1742. He was a farmer and overseer of Parrish roads in Kidallan in County Cavan. It is possible (but there is no definite proof) that he was descended from the Dr. Leonard Poe who was the official physician for King James I and later for King Charles I.

    David Poe, who married a woman named Sarah, gave birth to a son called John (date unknown). John Poe (Edgar’s great-grandfather) married Jane McBride and immigrated to America sometime around 1749 or 1750. They lived briefly in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and then moved and settled in Baltimore, Maryland. David and Jane had 10 children. Their son David (Edgar’s grandfather—still with me?) was born in either 1742 or 1743 before they came to America.

    Featuring poetry read by Mark Redfield by:
    - Edgar Allan Poe
    - Samuel Beckett
    - Jane Wilde
    - William Butler Yeats

Fascism

Fascism is actually far left as it’s the same thing as communism.

Nice Collection, terrible commentary

The shows were significant without your kindergarten interpretation. Stop trying to influence everyone and use someone else’s art and works. Make your own or let theirs stand as they presented it.
