Usher House and The Canterville Ghost

Ready for a spooky night out? The Kaye Playhouse transforms into two different haunted houses in a double bill of operas by Gordon Getty. Writer Edgar Allan Poe takes the stage himself as the main character of Usher House, an unsettling chiller that has all the classic elements of Gothic horror: a high-strung recluse, a beautiful madwoman and a sinister doctor, all hidden away in a crumbling manor house full of secrets. The Canterville Ghost puts a deft comic spin on Oscar Wilde’s witty tale, in which the 300-year-old ghost of an English nobleman fails to impress his newest audience, a family of Americans who simply refuse to be frightened.
