Catalyst Theatre and New Victory present this theatrical musical combining music, poetic storytelling, and stagecraft to tell the fascinating and moving life story of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe. More…
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.”
