That's So Raven! Much-beloved poet and Boston native Edgar Allan Poe gets the experimental comedy treatment for one madcap night at LitCrawl Boston. Will that dead body keep quiet? How will the young man ever get over the loss of his beloved with that black raven yapping away? Audiences will enjoy tales of the gothic and the macabre in twisted situations featuring top Boston comedians in period costume. According to ‘Wheel of Austen’ creators, audiences can expect bombastic characters playing with the conventions of Edgar Allan Poe in unexpected ways.
