A dramatic presentation by Lucien Douglas

Chez Zee and One Block West Productions are "trickled" to present, for the second year, the immensely popular "Halloween with Edgar Allan Poe".

Join us for a fun-filled, spooky evening of macabre and mysterious poems and stories by Edgar Allan Poe. The romance, the passion, and the fears of one of America's most distinguished writers are brought to life by actor Lucien Douglas in this dramatic presentation that includes performances of "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Raven."

The event will feature Chez Zee's signature desserts, coffee & "Raventini" cash bar.

Come in your favorite Halloween costume (only if you feel up to it)!! Seating is communal; our round tables seat 8-10 per table. You'll have the opportunity to meet & greet the actor after the show.

This event was sold out last year so please reserve your seats early!
