"The Fall of the House of Usher" audio drama by Macabre Mansion

With a cast that includes Jim O'Rear, John Billingsley, Bonita Friedericy and Kevin Sorbo, this audio adapation of the classic story sounds intriguing to this Poe fan.

From the official site:

"The Fall Of The House Of Usher" is an Audio Drama adaptation of the classic short story of the same name by Edgar Allan Poe. This adaptation stays true to Poe's original vision with only minor changes in dialogue. The script consists of four speaking roles; Roderick Usher, Madeline Usher, the family Doctor and the Narrator who is an un-named childhood friend of Roderick. The Audio Drama will have the same feel and style of the classic Old Time Radio shows.

This Audio Drama is the first in a series of planed Macabre Mansion Original recordings. Our goal is to produce and preserve significant works of classic literature in an audio theater format, and provide the widest possible access and exposure to these great classic works.

Also note that a portion of the proceeds goes to benefit "A World Fit for Kids." More information coming soon.
