The Poe Mysteries

25 Jul

We all know Cape May Lovers are also Theatre Lovers, so we had to let you know that today is opening day for East Lynne Theatre Company‘s new show, The Poe Mysteries. And, being opening night and all, there is an after-show party at The Washington Inn. The show runs now through September 1, so don’t miss it!

The Poe Mysteries, a World Premiere, adapted by James Rana, is based on the first modern detective stories ever written. C. Auguste Dupin is a recluse living in Paris, avoiding people and the bill collectors, when an American journalist comes to interview him. As the great detective recalls his cases, the characters spring to life on stage. Six actors portray 50 roles in Edgar Allan Poe’s famous “Murders in the Rue Morgue,” “The Murder of Marie Roget,” and “The Purloined Letter.” This production moves to Ocean Professional Theater Company in Barnegat, NJ from Oct. 24-27. Everyone in the cast has performed with ELTC before: Mark Edward Lang (The Guardsman), Shelley McPherson (Why Marry?), James Rana (Sherlock Holmes Adventure of the Norwood Builder), Thomas Raniszewski (Berkeley Square), Fred Velde (Dulcy), and Grace Wright (He and She). Gayle Stahlhuth directs.
