Oh NO-- you missed our 7-9pm Feb. 15 Poe Performance@ the Single Carrot Theatre?
No worries! If missed our special one-time FREE performance on Feb. 15, please stay tuned... it was so great that we're planning another! What could be better than an immersive Poe performance?
The admission was free, plus generous donations benefited Poe Baltimore! It happened on Sunday, February 15 at 7pm at the Single Carrot Theater (2600 N. Howard Street, Baltimore, 21218) and we'll post here when we'll schedule another performance sometime in 2015.
———————–Here's what you missed:
The talented folks at Baltimore Performance Kitchen have been cooking up “Poe’s Guide to Poe: A Critical Autobiography” and will offer a SINGLE performance (7pm, Feb. 15) at the Single Carrot Theatre (2600 Howard Street.) Staged in the open lobby space, this intimate and immersive performance-within-a-cocktail-party (yes–drinks will be served) is a ‘don’t miss’ event.
Even better—it’s free and open to the public, though since they’re generously offering “Poe’s Guide” to benefit Poe Baltimore, they’re suggest a $10 donation at the door. That’s something we truly appreciate!
Directed by Single Carrot Theatre founding member, Jessica Garrett, it stars Paul Diem* as the world’s beloved Edgar Allan Poe, a man caught between his identity and celebrity. Diem’s intimate yet irreverent performance simultaneously reveres and explores his character as the complex and dark father of the modern short story.
Again, tickets are ONLY available at the door, and we imagine this will be a popular event, so hopefully you won’t plan to arrive at the last millisecond… We’ll post more links soon, and will hope to see you there!

On Jan. 19, 2015, Edgar celebrated a Happy Birthday
Need we say more? Perhaps yes...as we wanted to thank everyone who made their personal pilgrimages to 203 N. Amity Street this past January! Kudos too to everyone -- artists, performers, and guests-- who gathered at Zella's Pizzaria for our party.
What perfectly Poe-tic ambiance, including the brilliant actress Cherie Weinert with her gripping performance of "The Tell-Tale Heart", illustrator David Plunkert, who autographed his deliciously dark "Edgar Allan Poe: Stories and Poems", as well as the "POE-Zella!" exhibiting artists William Alston, Katia Baskina, Greg Fletcher Lorraine Imwold, Lisa Martin, Jim O'Connor, Steve Parke, Walker Pedersen, Joanie Posner, Leslie Schwing, and Toven Street Art who contributed great work to the exhibition, plus everyone at Zella's Pizzaria for their fabulous hospitality.Finally, a huge thank you to the best crew of volunteers who made it all seem seamless, and our incredibly devoted board members.We think Poe would be humbled and thrilled by your ardor and passion for his brilliant work.And although the Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum is closed for a good part of the coming season, we hope you will make a virtual visit at your leisure (click the link below) while keeping our beloved Edgar close in your thoughts.

One of our most important goals is to expand the hours and days that the house is open and to create curriculum for school children around the state and nation. For that to happen, we need your support.
