A local theater company has one last weekend of performances featuring its first original offering in Indy. "Cabaret Poe" is the perfect addition to the area’s list of creepy entertainment around Halloween, and the show has become somewhat of a tradition.
The musical brings American gothic horror stories to the stage in a unique way. Q Artisty performs the show with original cast members at it’s space in Irvington Lodge. Composer and actor Ben Asaykwee is the mastermind behind the musical that was set to end in 2011.
"We were becoming an organization that was about presenting 'Cabaret Poe' instead of what we originaly set out to do," Asaykwee says.
He decided to bring the piece back after producing a number of other successful shows. Some of the re-imagined pieces in the musical include "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Black Cat," "Annabel Lee" and of course "The Raven." A limited number of tickets will be available at the door this weekend.
