David Keltz gave his first performance as Edgar Allan Poe on Halloween night 1991 at Poe's grave. Delighting all ages, he commands five hours of Poe's poems, short stories, essays, literary criticism, letters and reported conversations.

In his travels, Mr. Keltz performed in Prague, Czech Republic for the International Poe Festival, opening the Festival at the Rudolfinum Concert Hall with "The Bells." Stateside, he continues to bring Edgar Poe to life throughout the United States for elementary and high schools, universities, and private organizations, large and small. His popular Poe Bus Tour of Baltimore was a highlight of the Poe Studies Association International Conference in 2002.

Besides traditional theatre settings, performance spaces as diverse as castles, libraries, medical theatres, and private dining rooms provide the backdrop for his personification of the genius we recognize as Edgar Allan Poe. Each performance is tailored to the particular audience and ranges from 10 minutes to 2 hours.
