Event Description

Celebrate Valentine's Day — by burying it alive!

Edgar Allan Poe once wrote that the death of a beautiful woman is the most poetical topic in the world. See if he was right as Poe himself (portrayed by Rob Velella) returns to life to read from the works that best display that thin line between love and death — including "Annabel Lee" and "The Raven." Recommended for ages 13 and up. Admission is $6 per person, or $10 for couples.
