The National Endowment for the Arts’ Big Read campaign is looking to, “restore reading to the center of American culture.” Okay—that’s a pretty ambitious goal for a single project, but it’s a noble one. As a part of the NEA’s Big Read, UW-Whitewater’s Young Auditorium welcomes talented stage performer Joshua Kane in a performance of his one-man show Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Terro. A classically-trained actor, Kaine has set-up a business to specifically allow him to travel aroundperforming spoken word and one-man shows. The Poe show that he brings to the Young Auditorium is am ix of classics including The Tell-Tale Heart, The Masque of the Red Death, The Raven and others. As witnessed in the sample video below, Kaine’s got a big, dramatic stage presence that mixes a charming humor with the horror in a performance that should be a fun trip to the theatre with an author who rarely sees stage time.

Joshua Kaine brings Egar Allan Poe’s Tales of Terror to UW-Whiterwater’s Yonug Auditorium on Wednesday, April 6th at 7:30pm.. For reservations, call 262-472-4444.
