Electric Poe

The Coterie Theatre
The Coterie and Union Cemetery Historical Society's co-production of Electric Poe

Performed live at Kansas City’s historic Union Cemetery, ELECTRIC POE features readings of two moody masterpieces by Edgar Allan Poe and brought to life – and death! – by actor R.H. Wilhoit with music composed and performed by Rex Hobart on electric guitar. In “The Premature Burial,” a speaker delivers an antique TED Talk about his mortal fear, when it appears to manifest right before our eyes. Then, in “The Masque of the Red Death,” Prince Prospero walls himself and his courtiers away from the outside world where the contagious Red Death reigns. A co-production of The Coterie Theatre (Kansas City, MO) and Union Cemetery Historical Society.
