The Poe Show This Saturday! January 17th, 7:30pm
All are invited to join in the celebration of Edgar Allen Poe’s 200th Birthday this Saturday, January 17th at the Mesa Arts Center! Do you like the poetically odd? The strange taking stage?? Even the hysterically dark and cleverly bizarre??? If so, you’ll love the eighth-annual Poe Show: A Party Like No Other!
The Poe Show features some of the best local talent in the Phoenix Performance Arts scene, such as Jeff Falk, Nightwolf, The Klute, Harry Zona, Sacred Om Dance Troupe and Birthday Girl. Ravage your eyes and ears with such performance-faring excursions as “The Telltale Sock”: a comedic interpretation of Poe's work, new short movies including those by K.P., Outro and Sharon Skinner’s “Nelsonettes”, plus dramatic readings of Poe’s writings from Robert X Planet. Read more about the acts here or buy your tickets here. And remember, it’s a fundraiser for Anthology, Inc., whose mission is to promote performance poetry and associated literary arts in the greater Phoenix community by providing opportunities for artists to perform their work and by making spoken word arts accessible to a diverse audience.
