The Evening Crane Theatre presents The Spyglass Seven, a tale of Edgar Allan Poe
for one night at Theatre 80 St. Marks, this Halloween. In The Spyglass Seven the
spirit of Edgar Allan Poe returns to the earth for a single night to find his soul mate, and to visit with the ghosts of those he knew in life, including his cousin and wife Virginia Clemm, his literary rival Rufus Griswold, and his first and last love, Sarah Elmira Royster. The Spyglass Seven by Michael Seebold was the recipient of the 2012 Arts NC State Creative Artist Award and received its world premiere at NCSU University Theatre in the Autumn of 2013. This Halloween marks the play’s Off-Broadway and NY premiere at Theatre 80 St. Marks.
