We are celebrating all things Edgar Allan Poe and Poe-inspired in honor of what would have been his 206th birthday. The night will include Poe’s original works and interpretations of his work, work inspired by Poe, or work roasting him. You can look forward to spoken word, music, improv, and a special guest chosen to close out the night by reciting or interpreting The Raven.
Poe’s actual birthday is January 19, but he won’t mind if we celebrate early! This show is a revival of an annual event held in Phoenix, AZ, that ran for nine years.
The originator of the original Poe Show- The Klute will be flying in from Phoenix to perform at the event.
There is an open call for performers/acts/artists/musicians/jugglers/dancers/whoever wants to do something Poe-inspired for the show.
The deadline is November 30th. If you are interested in performing one of Poe’s pieces, please include which piece you are reading/interpreting along with your note of interest.
Contact Jessica at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are, or plan to be, in the Portland area and would like to perform.
We can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
You can RSVP to the event on the Facebook event page.
