This year’s theatrical performance, “Tales of Terror: An Evening with Poe,” invites visitors to join Mr. Poe as he progresses through four scenes around the Museum grounds in fear of, or perhaps to embrace, the evil that surrounds him. Inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe, the performance incorporates themes and bits from his works to weave a tale of eeriness and horror.
