PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A SHOW UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU’VE SEEN BEFORE.
Dark and dazzling, bizarre and beautiful, 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 chronicle the fascinating and moving life story of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe, one of the world’s most famous and fascinating writers.
Nevermore blends fact and fiction to create a darkly immersive experience that is difficult to describe, but impossible to forget. 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 dying in unexplained circumstances at the age of 40.
At once gorgeous and grotesque, 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.”
