THE EDGAR ALLAN POE FESTIVAL

 

Enter into the darkness of the 160 yrs old St. John’s Sanctuary where, lit by flickering candlelight, the critically acclaimed Radiotheatre, now in its 12th Year, presents 16 terror tales guaranteed to chill the marrow in your bones! It is said that when the Grandmaster Of Psychological Horror, himself...Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49)… lived in old Greenwich Village, he penned some of his most famous works.
