Edgar Allan Poe-Inspired Nevermore Set for Run at New World Stages
The whimsical, musical play is written, composed, and directed by Catalyst Theatre Artistic Director Jonathan Christenson.
Nevermore - The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe, a musical play written, composed, and directed by Catalyst Theatre Artistic Director Jonathan Christenson, will begin performances at New World Stages on January 14. An official opening night is scheduled for January 25.
Nevermore is a whimsical production following Poe as he struggles with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss — all while producing some of the world's most original literature. Nevermore blurs the line between fact and fiction, exploring the events that shaped Poe's character and career.
The musical play features sets, costumes, and lighting designed by Bretta Gerecke. Choreography is by Laura Krewski, and sound design is by Wade Staples.
Originally produced by Canada's Catalyst Theatre of Edmonton in 2009 to commemorate the bicentennial of Poe's birth, this production of Nevermore includes six of the seven original cast members: Gaelan Beatty, Shannon Blanchett, Beth Graham, Ryan Parker, Garett Ross, and Scott Shpeley.
