Twin Cities Horror Festival V: Edgar Allan by The Coldharts
Edgar Allan is performed by The Coldharts, and is a charming, simple musical about young Edgar Allan and the mysterious other Edgar Allan that he meets at school. It's unsurprisingly dark and surprisingly funny, with a whole lot of story for a one-hour show. The Coldharts are Katie Hartman and Nick Ryan, two theatre artists based in Brooklyn, New York. They create American Gothic-inspired, devised, music-theatre. Edgar Allan is part of The Coldharts American Gothic trilogy, all three of which were performed at the Twin Cities Horror Festival. I'm really hoping they'll return next year so I can see all three. Please come back soon, The Coldharts!
If You're Sensitive and/or Delicate: No worries. Unless you have a fear of ukeleles.
In Short: It's funny and grim and dark and charming.
