A&E FYI: My boss’s new career as a JFK impersonator

Guess who’s celebrating the holidays dressed as JFK? None other than Superior Telegram publisher/Bostonian extraordinaire Ken Browall!

Read on…

A cast of unlikely characters will haunt Fairlawn Mansion for two performances of “An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe” Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26 and 27, beginning at 7 pm.

Written and directed by Judith Liebaert, this comedic farce invites guest to sit back and enjoy the fun while ghostly celebrities roast the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe.

Thinking her séance just an innocent parlor game, the mistress of the manor seems to have summoned forth a host of dead celebrities intent on having a good time while they can.

The cast of “celebrities” includes Dean Martin (played by Gary Banker), Groucho Marx (Dale Botten), Foster Brooks ( Matt Cetnar), William Braveheart Wallace (Roger Morris), Kate Hepburn (Kate Horvath), Snow White (Debbie Anderson), John F. Kennedy (Browall), Marilyn Monroe (Judith Liebaert, the play’s writer), Truman Capote (Charlie Glazman), Sarah Good (Stacy Reuille Dupont), Bridget Bishop (Bridget Markwood) and, of course, Poe himself (John Munson).

To once again put to rest these ill-behaved spirits which have overrun his beloved Fairlawn, Poe agrees to subject himself to their cutting commentary and reclaim his beloved Fairlawn forevermore.

Tickets are $18 and must be purchased in advance by calling Fairlawn at (715) 378-4550. Dessert and coffee will be served after the performance.
