This Halloween weekend the creative team of Aaron Washington and Keith Eisenstadt will be providing audiences with a different style of haunting. On the evening of Saturday October 29th and afternoon of Sunday October 30th, Washington and Eisenstadt will present ‘Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe’. The show will be a collaboration between directors; Aaron Washington, Keith Eisenstadt, and Lauren Rodriguez. To support literature and the arts in local classrooms, producers will be donating a portion of each ticket sold through DonorsChoose.org. Performances will be held in The Studio @ The Carrollwood Cultural Center.

Edgar Allan Poe is amongst the most influential of American Poets; with a flair for the dramatic. Poe’s works fit perfectly with the mission of Washington and Eisenstadt; to celebrate literature and the arts and support the education of the same. The drama written by Eric Coble, features four of Poe’s most haunting tales; “The Pit and the Pendulum” directed by Washington, “The Raven” and “The Tell Tale Heart” directed by Eisenstadt, and “The Fall of the House of Usher” directed by Rodriguez. The pieces are arranged and performed to highlight the dramatic elements of the writing and presented in a way that will give the audience chills. At the beginning of the show, Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself, and us, that he’s not mad. Enter the world of Poe and check your heartbeat at the door.

“Nightfall with Edgar Allan Poe” will be presented by Washington and Eisenstadt on Saturday October 29th at 8pm and Sunday October 30th at 2pm. Performances will be held in The Studio @ The Carrollwood Cultural Center located at 13345 Casey Rd in Tampa. Tickets are priced at $20 and are available by calling The Carrollwood Cultural Center Box Office at (813) 269-1310 or at the door one hour before show times.
