Beautiful and bizarre, playful and perverse, Nevermore- The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe is a whimsical and macabre musical play about the enigmatic writer who has fascinated the world for more than a century. Poe struggled with tragedy, addiction, poverty, and severe loss while producing some of the world's most original, visionary and enduring literature before dying in mysterious 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."
