NOTES FROM ED CHEVY

I’d like to say that engineering Poe’s tales through storytellers like Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee and Vincent Price were told straight from the book. Poe’s stories were not easy done to adapt. Dismantling old Poe stigma and put sign language into theater were fully invested. Sitting in the dark means one thing, Poe is no bedtime writer.

PROFILE:

Ed Chevy has been a leader in the entertainment business in Hawaii for 30 years. Prior to his storytelling movements, he started his ascent as a Deaf rocker in the Deaf rock industry, working with Beethoven’s Nightmare as a bassist and composer. Ed has tackled many different genres in his long career as a performer, including The Man From A.S.L. and Lifting ASL to a Living Art. Now Ed offers chance to sink your  teeth into gothic melodrama story based on the great Edgar Allan Poe. These stories were adapted to sign language with voice over.
