The increasing trend of bringing theater off the stage and into elaborate environments continues as the life and tales of Edgar Allan Poe have inspired the Maryland Historical Society proudly to create a new immersive experience called Mesmeric Revelations of Edgar Allan Poe.

Neither an historical reenactment nor a reproduction of Poe’s stories, Mesmeric Revelations of Edgar Allan Poe is an interpretive performance that will invite audiences into a Poe-inspired world that can be freely explored as stories unfold and secrets are revealed. Audience members will share moments directly with the characters, interact with the sets, explore the environment, and choose which stories to follow across six main characters that are pulled from Poe’s life and fiction.

It will all take place at the Enoch Pratt House, a circa 1840s Greek Revival home that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Baltimore’s West End.

The two-hour performances will take place Thurs-Sat from March 26-early May, 2015, at 8 PM. For tickets and more information, visit myedgarallanpoe.com.

For Halloween 2015, famed rocker Ozzy Osbourne is planning a massive, monthlong show called Hell Gate in Las Vegas.

The details of the show are still very much a mystery, but in a recent conversation with wife Sharon Osbourne on “The Talk” a few tidbits came out. Ozzy will be there performing for the entire month of October, but it seems it will be more than just a live concert.

Sharon called Hell Gate “a very state-of-the-art, interactive show.” What exactly makes the performance interactive remains to be seen. There will be Halloween elements to it, but it’s not clear if an actual walkthrough Hell Gate haunted attraction will exist or something entirely different.

Hell Gate has an official Facebook page and Twitter account but little else at this point.

We’ve all seen what happened when Tim Burton put his twisted spin on “Alice in Wonderland.” So what if other Disney Princesses became Burtonized?

Artist SilverTallest has a series of artwork that shows just that, including Ariel, Cinderella, Aurora, and more.

Jason fans are finally getting the game they’ve been wanting this year.

A video game based on “Friday the 13th” is being developed as a multiplayer horror adventure that’s both cooperative and competitive. Mirroring the classic slasher films, some players will band together as survivors while a single player will play as Jason, hunting them down.

No game studio has been named yet, nor have the specific platforms it’s being developed for, though those announcements are expected soon. The game is expected to be released in October 2015, in time for Halloween.

The first and last time the world saw Jason officially in a Friday the 13th video game was on the NES in 1989:

The new game will surely feature far more modern graphics and will be based on the film series along with the upcoming “Friday the 13th” TV series.

Ghost stories aren’t just for Halloween…

An Orlando tradition for 17 years, Dickens by Candlelight is the perfect paranormal performance this Holiday Season. This unique and intimate iteration of the classic tale of goodwill towards men is a must see experience.

Told entirely in Dickens’ own words (except for one word and a little bit of improv), the transformative tale of Ebenezer Scrooge is brought to life by three very talented actors (John DiDonna, Morgan Russell and Monica Long Tamborello). In a cozy tea room-like setting, the action takes place around the audience instead of on a central stage. During the 90-minute presentation and several costume changes, the talented trio tackles the majority of Charles Dickens’ classic characters along with a few others “filled in” by audience members.

Taking place in two venues this year, the touching tale is told over tea (an amazing cinnamon herbal blend) and homemade cookies at the Lowndes Shakespeare Theater for regular performances or in-between dinner courses during a special engagement at Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Shows. Guests arriving at the Lowndes Theater in time for the pre-show are treated to the tradition of wassailing in the courtyard.

Dickens by Candlelight will delight and engage anyone attending. While the spirts of Christmas Past, Present and Future were able to work their wonders in one magical night, patrons still have several opportunities to experience this unique and touching tale.
