WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
His most famous works - The Raven, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Tell-Tale Heart, etc. have fascinated, haunted, and Among all his great works -- The Pit and the Pendulum, The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, etc. -- there is no tale as macabre, bizarre or as endlessly haunting as Edgar Allan Poe's own life story. Now this personal history, one of the most controversial in all of literature, is explored with passion and shocking insight in Nevermore, the musical from Evening Star Productions. Composer Matt Conner has fashioned Poe's already innately lyrical poetry into soaring musical numbers that transport the audience deep into the mind of one America's most honored (and most tortured) writers. At times disturbing, but always charming, Nevermore is a uniquely powerful story of love, personal demons and artistic self-discovery.
