NEVERMORE — THE IMAGINARY LIFE AND MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF EDGAR ALLAN POE

by Jonathan Christenson
This unique and wildly theatrical musical combines haunting music and poetic storytelling to chronicle the fascinating life of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe. A literary rock star of his day, Poe struggles with tragedy and addiction, poverty and loss, yet produces 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, Nevermoreexplores the events that shape Poe's character and career, blurring the line between fact and fiction--after all, as Poe himself writes, "All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream."   For more information or to request a script please contact us at info@broadwaylicensing.com.
