A Dream Within a Dream: The Spectre of Edgar Allan Poe
Set the mood for Halloween and celebrate Americas master of the macabre at the haunted Whaley House historic theater for two riveting performances of A Dream Within a Dream: The Spectre of Edgar Allan Poe on October 15 at 6pm and 8pm. Award-winning actor Travis Rhett Wilson will portray the iconic poet and storytellers tragic biography, reciting and drawing on Poes spookiest poetry, fiction, letters and journals. Assuming the eerie demeanor of his subject, Wilson will deliver tales of madness, including "The Raven" and "The Tell-Tale Heart," and hell recite Poe's hauntingly melancholic poem, "Annabel Lee."

A Dream Within A Dream will transport you back to a Poe-era Halloween in the mid 19th-century in the perfect setting: the intimate, 40-seat Theatre at the Whaley House, San Diegos first commercial stage in 1868.
