BWW Review: Doctuh Mistuh's NEVERMORE Dazzles at Austin PlayhouseBWW Review: Doctuh Mistuh's NEVERMORE Dazzles at Austin Playhouse
by Frank Benge - Oct 24, 2016

NEVERMORE: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe is a Canadian musical that was written and composed by Jonathan Christenson which follows the rather dismal life and internal struggles of Edgar Allan Poe that later on inspired his work as an author. The script contains references to both his poems and short stories. While most of the script dramatizes true events in his life, other aspects are entirely fictitious. The musical was originally produced at the Catalyst Theatre in Edmonton, Alberta and went on to be performed across Canada, and at the Barbican Theater in London, and the New Victory Theatre in NYC. The current production now playing at Austin Playhouse is a regional premiere. (more...)
