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.

... Read 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.”

Entertaining, Great songs, Great story, Biographical, Steampunk

See it if You like Edgar Allan Poe & want to hear suppositions about his life that, while fiction, are informative/cool. You love unique costumes.

Don't see it if You don't want to see a musical about a poet or you don't like the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe. You don't want to see anything sad on stage.

Banal, Excruciating, Cliched, Slow, Snooze fest

Don't see it if you want to see a well written musical, because this is not; best lyrics were from Poe's poetry, otherwise very weak overall

Original, Edgy, Exquisite, Intense, Great staging

See it if You love all things Poe...even though it's not all true, it is a wonderfully designed fantasy with great talent and a Tim Burton feel. Love!

Don't see it if You are an extreme Poe purist who can't handle history being altered and turned into something fantastical.
