About this Event

This event is in honor of Poetry month.

As an actress and playwright, I have performed as Edgar Poe and Poe’s one-time fiancée, Helen Whitman since 1999. First “Poe-sessed” in high school when, for an acting class, I memorized “The Raven,” I fell in love with Poe’s poetry. Eventually, I came to love almost everything that Poe has written, so my repertoire expands.

My first appearance as Edgar was at the Ritz Theater of Oaklyn, NJ. Bruce Curless, founder of the Ritz Theater, directed my performance as (Sarah) Helen Whitman in “Remembering Poe”. I had written “Remembering Poe” to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Poe’s death.

Mr. Curless offered me the opportunity to play Helen Whitman for act one and, after Intermission, to return as Poe for act two. As an actress, I’d always longed to perform as Poe, but, of course, felt intimidated by the idea of performing as a man. So Bruce’s offer was a dream come true - a dream that I hardly dared to dream! Thank you, Bruce! Women performing as male characters occurs more these days, but it was not so prevalent in 1999. Since then I have performed as Poe on stage, radio and television. It is a joy for me to stretch my acting and writing skills in this way. Each performance is an opportunity to attempt to almost channel the great writer.

Tickets are $28 per person. Advance registration required. This is a fundraiser for the Historic Village at Allaire.

Patrons will be required to adhere to social distancing and must wear masks while within the Historic Allaire Chapel at the performance.

Purchase tickets via EventBrite, print your tickets out and bring them with you on the night of the performance. Park in the Main Parking lot of Allaire State Park and follow the lanterns to the "Check-In" area by the Allaire Chapel.
