dR Daily 10/30: Poe & Dickinson Do the duPontcast
The Best Thing You Can Do Today: Meet the stars of Edgar & Emily on Facebook Live
It’s Halloween Eve, so the duPontcast — airing today at 1:30 on Facebook Live — has snagged some very special guests: the late, somewhat-obsessed-with-death poet Emily Dickinson and the very late, very-obsessed-with-death poet and yarn-spinner Edgar Allan Poe, currently sharing the stage at Jobsite Theater in Tampa.
This delightful duo will be here in the person of Katrina Stevenson and Paul Potenza, two of the most talented, versatile theater artists in Tampa Bay. I don’t think they’ll be in costume (or in character), but that’s OK, because there’s so much to talk about, in particular their roles in Edgar & Emily, a critically acclaimed comedy that imagines a visit by Edgar to Emily in 1864 — 15 years after his death. We’ll also talk about Jobsite’s 20th(!) anniversary year and the two actors’ wide and varied theater experience — including Katrina’s recent award for “Outstanding Performance by an Actress While Hanging Upside Down on a Silk.”
Tune in at 1:30!
Jobsite’s Edgar & Emily continues its run at the Straz Center’s Shimberg Playhouse in Tampa through Nov. 4: Thurs.-Sat. at 8 p.m., Sun. at 4 p.m. jobsitetheater.org.
