About the musical

This unique and wildly theatrical musical combines haunting music and poetic storytelling to chronicle the fascinating life of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe.  Originally produced by Catalyst Theatre of Edmonton, Canada in 2009 to commemorate the bicentennial of Poe’s birth (January 19, 1809), Nevermore has toured extensively, playing acclaimed engagements throughout Canada and in London at the prestigious Barbican Center. The show’s engagement in 2010 at New Victory Theatre was greeted by wildly enthusiastic audiences and sold-out houses.  

Story

A literary rock star of his day, Edgar Allan Poe struggles with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss, yet produces some of the world’s most original, visionary and enduring literature before dying in unexplained circumstances at the age of 40. At once gorgeous and grotesque, Nevermore explores the events that shape Poe’s character and career, blurring the line between fact and fiction–after all, as Poe himself writes, “All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”
