A dark and dreadful night. A woman in white lost within a wood. And the only shelter is a house full of murderers.
Mixing funhouse tricks, Grand Guignol and a deadly game of cat and mouse, Murder By Poe is a theatrical reimagining of some of Edgar Allan Poe's most famous tales of terror--"The Black Cat," "The Tell-tale Heart," "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "William Wilson," "The Purloined Letter," and "The Fall of the House of Usher."
As each haunted figure tells a story of crime and mayhem, the woman must solve the puzzle of the house and the riddle of the man who ushers her into its mysteries."
Performed without intermission; approximately 90 minutes in length. Not recommended for very young children.
Concessions are available, but no dinner service.
Show tickets: Adults $10, Seniors sixty and over, $8, Students $7, Children fourteen and younger, $5
