Description

Waltham native and independent scholar Rob Velella has made it his stated goal to “…do nothing less than bring 19th-century writers back from the dead.” Using first-person, in-character interpretation, Rob portrays the young Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Nathaniel Hawthorne and, of course, Edgar A. Poe.

With its lofty ceiling, marble floors and beautiful decor, the Great Hall of the 1806 Gore mansion will provide the perfect setting for these spooky tales. What better way to spend a winter’s eve?

This event is recommended for those ages 16 and older.
