Ep. 20 He’s Just a Poe Boy with Tony Dingman 10-16-19

Tony Dingman is an actor, historical educator, playwright, and creator of the Frazier History Museum’s annual event An Evening with Poe, which is a celebration of everything dark and macabre about this great American author. For 10 years he and the other actors at the Frazier have been adapting and creatively performing such classics as The Raven, The Bells, and the Tell-Tale Heart but they also include the lesser known works of Edgar Allan Poe each Halloween season.

Tony tells us how long it takes to research and write scripts for the historical figures he plays, which Poe story literally made a school student scream , and why it’s ok to fail at something before you actually succeed, regardless of whether you are Edgar Allen Poe or someone not famous at all.
