Summary

In celebration of its 16th Season in downtown NYC, the critically acclaimed, award-winning troupe of performers RADIOTHEATRE presents its 4th Annual EDGAR ALLAN POE FESTIVAL MAY 16-JUNE 1. A favorite event with our legion of fans, the last three POE fests SOLD OUT quickly filling the 192 yrs old ST.JOHN’S SANCTUARY in the heart of historic Greenwich Village. Amidst the flickering candlelight and foggy mist, the RT players will once again present LIVE ON STAGE a challenging repertory of the greatest of terrifying stories penned by the Master of The Macabre, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) who once lived but a few blocks away and attended this very church.

Since RADIOTHEATRE is the only theatre to honor America’s most famous writer whose works have never been out of publication and have gone on to influence thousands of writers, artists, filmmakers, playwrights, etc…in fact the sheer enormity of his impact on cultures all over the world is beyond description…it’s only fitting that RT celebrates his 210th birthday this year by pulling out all the stops with the best of its stage adaptations accompanied by great storytellers, original orchestral scores, fantastic visual FX and award-winning sound design that usually leaves its audiences clamoring for more!

The repertory includes: THE TELLTALE HEART, THE BLACK CAT, THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, HOP FROG, THE MASQUE OF RED DEATH, THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO, THE RAVEN, MORELLA, ANNABEL LEE, THE OBLONG COFFIN, MS. FOUND IN A BOTTLE, THE CASE OF M.VALDEMAR, THE OVAL PORTRAIT, BERENICE.
