Limited Edition Artwork Unveiled for Somerville Theater’s NEVERMORE Performance This Halloween

As part of a gala celebration for the master of the macabre Edgar Allen Poe, fans  (OK, paying customers) will be treated to a special, one time presentation of Stuart Gordon’s  award winning stage play NEVERMORE. The play stars genre icon Jeffrey Combs stepping into the role of Poe. Combs is best know for his role as Dr. Herbert West in Gordon’s The Re-Animator but also has years of stage experience. 

As you can see from the attached photo, the show’s producer Izzy Lee and Nihl Noctem Productions have commissioned award winning art studio Phantom City Creative to render Combs likeness as Poe. These 18″ x 24″ prints are now available for pre-order ($50 for pickup or $65 shipped). These prints are limited to 100 and will be personally signed by Combs. 

Boston area fans have the additional option of getting their prints signed by the creative team at one of two special locations:
