“…Poe’s Last Stanza falls into the category of ephemeral theatrical brilliance that will linger on and be remembered by those who were fortunate enough to encounter the performance… -Amanda Gunther of TheatreBloom If you’ve ever felt that you’d like to sit down to have drinks with Edgar Allan Poe, please treat yourself to this show, as you’ll be doing just that. -Cybele Pomeroy of Broadway World Review Being a great fan of Poe, I was very skeptical…then the show started, and I forgot to be skeptical and just got caught up. I swear I feel like I just had a few drinks with Poe. -Kevin Elmont Poe’s Last Stanza as the anchor to this gem of an evening deserves repetition somewhere (or many wheres) in Baltimore, Poe’s final stomping grounds. If you were not among the fortunate 75 or 80 people to have enjoyed its debut, you have missed a rare treat. And that’s a damned shame. -Broadway World Review

Who Is This Show Right For?


  • While there is reference to Poe’s alcohol use and light sexual innuendo in the dialogue, the show is appropriate for all ages.
  • Poe lovers will particularly appreciate the poetry and storyline.
  • Great for tourists and groups looking to experience Baltimore’s rich history.
