David Keltz as Edgar Allan PoeWHAT:          Join The Lyceum, Alexandria’s History Museum, for two unforgettable Halloween evenings with America’s earliest master of the macabre, Edgar Allen Poe!

Mr. Kelz’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.
