HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) — Centenary Stage Company’s Fringe Festival 2023 will continue with ALONE: Stories by Edgar Allan Poe starring Daniel Hall Kuhn.

Daniel Hall Kuhn brings his show Alone: Stories by Edgar Allan Poe to the Kutz Theatre at Centenary Stage Company. This multi-disciplinary immersive show brings six stories and poems by Poe, including The Raven, Tell Tale Heart and Annabel Lee to life through Kuhn’s performance.

For almost a decade, Daniel Hall Kuhn has been touring the country presenting various literary classics by Edgar Allan Poe, and his new one man, show ALONE: Stories by Edgar Allan Poe featuresimmersive multimedia effects that lure audiences into the literary universe created by the “master of the macabre”, Edgar Allan Poe. The show made its world premiere in March of this year at the Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill, NY as a part of their 2023 “SoloFest”.

Daniel Hall Kuhn was bitten by the theater bug in high school, and from there went on to study acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.  Not long after that he was awarded a full tuition performance scholarship to attend West Virginia Universities BFA program.

Upon completing his university studies Daniel delved right into producing his own works as well as working with multiple regional and summer stock theaters. For the better part of a decade, Daniel did 16 national tours. During the pandemic, he began his Edgar Allan Poe project with the intent of offering a live theater experience in any space an audience can gather, in both public and academic settings. Daniel has also worked in film and voiceover. Though not his most recent, one of his favorite cheesiest rolls would have to be the mad scientist, Dr. Goddard in the movie “Ice Queen”.
