The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe
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 (1809-1849).
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, 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.”
Originally produced by Catalyst Theatre of Edmonton, Canada in 2009 to commemorate the bicentennial of Poe’s birth (January 19, 1809), Nevermore has played throughout Europe and has two successful Off-Broadway runs. Nevermore is written, composed, and originally directed by Catalyst Theatre’s Artistic Director, Jonathan Christenson. The DMP production will be directed by Michael McKelvey with inspired costumes by Glenda Wolfe. The cast includes Tyler Jones, Jessica Hughes, Joey Banks, Megan Rabuse, Matt Connely, Suzanne Balling and Stephen Mercantel.
