Event Details:Don't miss an unforgettable evening – one night only – with America’s earliest master of the macabre - Edgar Allan Poe! Seating is limited to allow for distancing! Actor David Keltz returns to The Lyceum’s lecture hall to re-create Poe’s visit to Virginia in 1849, shortly before his death.

Valdemar,” and well-known poems “The Raven” and “El Dorado.” Mr. Keltz’s performance has been lauded by The Poe House and Museum in Baltimore, The Poe Museum in Richmond, and the Poe National Historic Site in Philadelphia.
