Who says springtime in New York can't be spooky? You'll be shivering in your skivvies during the 2017 Edgar Allan Poe Festival, opening this weekend at the centuries-old St. John's Sanctuary in Greenwich Village. Radiotheatre's renowned performers bring life to Poe's tales of death and misery, including eerie fan favorites such as "The Cask of Amontillado" and "The Tell-Tale Heart." Die-hard horror buffs will revel in the flickering candlelight and mist drifting through the pews. Swing by for a celebration of all things Poe, but stay for the stories of his "children," a band of contemporary writers and composers following in the footsteps of the master of fright.


A celebration of all things Poe, complete with creepy costumes and spooky sound effects.
You don't want to wait until Halloween for a good scare.
81 Christopher St., New York, NY 10014
May 12-27. See showtimes online.
