Spoiler alert! “The Last Poem” written by Edgar Allan Poe before his untimely death was “Annabel Lee.” Join him and his young wife, Virginia, as they discuss Poe’s works and strive to find a new artistic direction for Poe to pursue. Presented as part of a three-day Edgar Allan Poe weekend! See details at https://bellandbartertheatre.org/ (and scroll down a bit). This new musical is a new direction for Thompson and Russell in at least two ways: first, it is not a children’s musical (but it is kid-friendly). Second, a third “collaborator” is present in the form of Edgar Allan Poe. His poetry has been adapted into lyrics that carry the action forward.
New Musical THE LAST POEM premieres Oct. 8
