The Raven, a movie starring John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe, takes the macabre stories of Poe and brings them to life with a series of ghastly crimes that he must solve. Kevin Ewert, Associate Professor of Theater at University of Pittsburgh Bradford, recently staged his own recreation of Poe’s stories in a kind of haunted house of literature at the Seneca building in Bradford. He talks about his thoughts on the way The Raven movie was staged and getting to the heart of a tale in ways that are compelling for an audience.
