Photo Coverage: Edgar Allan Poe Comes to the Stage- Inside Opening Night of NEVERMORE!

NEVERMORE - The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe, a unique theatrical experience combining haunting music, poetic storytelling, and stunning stagecraft to tell the fascinating and moving life story of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), began performances at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues) on January 14, 2015, with an official opening last night, January 25, 2015. BroadwayWorld brings you photos from inside opening night below!

Beautiful and bizarre, playful and perverse, Nevermore- The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar AllanPoe is a whimsical and chilling musical play about the enigmatic writer who has fascinated the world for more than a century. 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 mysterious 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."

NEVERMORE is written, composed, and directed by Catalyst Theatre's (Edmonton, Canada) Artistic Director, Jonathan Christenson. The physical world of Nevermore - including sets, costumes, and lighting - is designed by Bretta Gerecke. The production features choreography by Laura Krewski and sound design is by Wade Staples.
