Nevermore — The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe has announced plans to record an original off-Broadway cast album, which will be released on Broadway Records in June 2015. As previously announced, the production, which is currently running at New World Stages, will end its run on March 29.

Nevermore is a whimsical production following Edgar Allan Poe as he struggles with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss — all while producing some of the world's most original literature. The musical play blurs the line between fact and fiction, exploring the events that shaped Poe's character and career.

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.

The design team includes sets, costumes, and lighting designed by Bretta Gerecke. Choreography is by Laura Krewski, and sound design is by Wade Staples.
