From the creators of Frankenstein: A Cabaret, The Snow Queen: A Folk Opera, and 2017's Atlantis, The Broken Planetarium presents a two-night, limited run variety show in honor of Halloween. Lenore Rises: An Edgar Allan Poe Macabaret is a curated variety show where artists and performers from around Portland give voice to Poe's female characters through art installations, live music, Dolly Parton impersonations, dance, and of course, macabre cabaret. Come see the work of the theater and arts collective that Willamette Week has said is making “some of the most imaginative theater in Portland.”
This show is a curated gathering of the Broken Planetarium's regular arts gatherings that have artists and community members sharing what they've made around a monthly theme. To join us and for more information, go to www.brokenplanetarium.org.
