This spellbinding stage version of Edgar Allan Poe’s masterpiece is written and directed by Arthur Yorinks and Jim Simpson and features a score by Philip Glass, adapted from the House of Usher opera that Glass and Yorinks created in 1988. The work-in- progress presentation is replete with puppets, musicians, actors, and projections — and is suggested for audiences 16 and older.
