Electric Poe

Event Navigation

October 19-November 5, 2023
6:30 p.m.
Union Cemetery, 227 East 28th Terrace

Electric Poe returns to Union Cemetery to showcase three newly adapted Poe works. R.H. Wilhoit captivates as the master of the macabre, performing Poe’s beloved poem, “Annabel Lee,” his ode to obsession, “Berenice,” as well as his claustrophobic classic, “The Cask of Amontillado,” in which a man takes fatal revenge on his friend by entombing him within a stone wall. Again this year, live music will punctuate the moody masterpieces. Treat yourself and your family this Halloween to superb acting accompanied by atmospheric underscoring in front of Union Cemetery’s “Holding Vault,” built in 1857 in Kansas City’s oldest public cemetery.
