Love Edgar Allan Poe? If So, Make Plans to See This Literary-Inspired Play

Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe is a unique and wildly theatrical musical play combining haunting music, poetic storytelling, and stunning stagecraft to tell the fascinating and moving life story of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe. Enjoy the Halloween season just a bit longer when you catch this interesting tale on Thursday, November 8th.

A literary rock star in his day, Poe struggled with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss, yet produced some of the world's most original, visionary and enduring literature before inexplicably dying at the age of 40. At once gorgeous and grotesque, Nevermore blurs the line between fact and fiction, exploring the events that shaped Poe's character and career and giving powerful expression to Poe's words "all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream."

Nevermore debuted in 2009 to commemorate the bicentennial of Poe's birth (January 19, 1809) and went on to enjoy two successful off-Broadway runs. This production, co-produced with Doctuh Mistuh Productions, reunites the cast and creative team of the show's 2016 Austin premiere, which won the B. Iden Payne Awards for Best Musical, Best Director, Best Costume Design, Best Actress and Best Ensemble.
