Spend Halloween with Edgar Allan Poe in Old Town

Edgar Allan Poe will be returning to the Lyceum (201 S. Washington Street) in a recreation of a 19th-century reading of his stories and poetry.

Well, it’s actually actor David Keltz, but since 1991 Keltz has stepped into Poe’s shoes and performed the grim works of the American poet. This year’s program is scheduled to include stories The Man of the Crowd and The Black Cat, as well as the poems To — (I heed not that my earthly lot), Eldorado, and the famous The Raven.

The performance is intended to recreate Poe’s visit to Alexandria in 1849, shortly before his death, according to the event’s website.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 30, and Thursday, Oct. 31. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the performance begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person.

A beer and wine cash bar will be open before the show.
