When: Sat., Aug. 20 2011
By day, Canal Fulton's Warehouse on the Canal looks like your typical building of its era. But by night, the space transforms into something far more creepy, filled with spirits, corpses, and some of the best storytelling of the 1800s. Take tonight, for instance, when Edgar Allan Poe expert John Kiste hosts another edition of Poe Live Theater, ushering guests into the bizarre and sometimes humorous world of the legendary author. Dressed in period garb and reciting Poe's words as if they were his own, he sometimes clouds the line between our world and Poe's decidedly spine-tingling alternative. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 8. Tickets are $20, which includes coffee, dessert, and brandy; a cash bar is also available. Reservations are suggested; ravens are welcome. — Hayden 239 North Canal St., Canal Fulton, 330-854-1111, theghostsofcanalfulton.com.
