"The Cooping Theory: Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe?" will return with Halloween edition.
NEW YORK, August 11 -- "The Cooping Theory: Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe?," Poseiden Theatre's immersive mystery production at St. Mazie Bar and Supper Club in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is taking a hiatus beginning June 28, 2017 and returning with a Halloween Edition from October 11 to 31, 2017. The gap will be used for Artistic Director Aaron Salazar and his team to re-imagine the offering for the Halloween season.
"The Cooping Theory: Who Killed Edgar Allan Poe?" is written by Nate Suggs and Samantha Lacey in collaboration with Salazar, who directs. It is staged with dining and drinks in the reconstructed former speakeasy underneath St. Mazie Bar and Supper Club, 345 Grand Street, Williamsburg Brooklyn (between Havemeyer and Marcy). It's an immersive mystery production in the genre of "Then She Fell" and "Sleep No More" with one significant difference: unlike most immersive shows, which are dance-driven, this one is text-based. The room accommodates up to 30 guests per night for an evening of craft cocktails, a full dinner and a paranormal experience, all set to the words of America's greatest master of the macabre.
When performances resume, tickets will be $75 plus $25 food/beverage minimum, with discounts available exclusively on Today Tix. Food offerings will include cocktails and light fare and Absinthe Service. The play will be performed without intermission. A Halloween Special with haunted additions is being planned for October 31.
WHAT THEY ARE SAYING
"Salazar creates images that seem to come out of nightmares…the kind where you want to tap your neighbor and whisper, or scream, 'are you seeing what I’m seeing?'" -- Jose Solis, Stagebuddy.com
"…something mysterious does happen: actors give in to Poe’s poetry entirely…Never had I thought of an actor as being possessed by the writer through the text, and yet I can’t find other words to describe what I saw." -- Asya Danilova, On Stage Blog
