Watch antique relics transform before your eyes and learn some eerie connections between the lives and writings of Stephanie Meyer, Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker and more! Experience interactive theatre at its best when illusionist and magician Robert Halbrook spins a web between authors and stories past and present. Halbrook will inspire you to pick up and read a classic to see if you can discover the same strange phenomena!
“I have found many fascinating associations between today’s popular writers and those of long ago…but you’ll have to come to the show to learn more,” remarked Halbrook. “For example, the Fox Sisters gained reputations as psychics far before Alison Dubois! Did you know that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Harry Houdini were friends? They were! Join me for Dark Tales and I’ll share why their friendship ended,” added Halbrook.
