Murder, Mystery, & Poe – Tickets on Sale Now!

Join the Crosley Theater Company for an eerie evening of theater from the Master of the Macabre, Edgar Allan Poe! The first act will feature Poe’s classic tale of revenge and murder, “The Cask of Amontillado.” After intermission, it's “An Evening with Gwendolyn.” Gwendolyn Crosley, wife of inventor Powel Crosley, thoroughly enjoyed last night’s séance.  It’s a shame she didn’t get to speak with Poe. She did make contact with an enigmatic friend of his, Sarah Royster.  Alas, the encounter was brief, and Gwendolyn returned home alone.  Or did she? Watch one woman’s descent into madness in “The Telltale Heart.”
