"Barely 10 minutes into Catalyst Theatre's Nevermore...you know you're in the presence of genius."
Delightfully dark, heartbreakingly comic, playfully perverse, beautiful and grotesque, Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe is a whimsical and chilling musical fairytale for adults. The line between fact and fiction in this tale is slim, dreams function as reality - and just like in Poe's work life and death are blurry. Bizarrely beautiful and wonderfully witty, Nevermore uses haunting song, poetic storytelling and surreal imagery to explore the events that shaped Poe's career and ignited his lifelong battle with "visions dark and sinister."
Along with multi-‐Tony Award winning Broadway producers Radio Mouse Entertainment we are pleased to announce an open ended Off Broadway run of Nevermore in New York City in January 2015.
Writer, director, composer Jonathan Christenson leads his collaborators Bretta Gerecke, Laura Krewski, Wade Staples, Betty Moulton, Matthew Skopyk and Candice Charney. The Edmonton-‐based cast members Shannon Blanchet, Beth Graham, Ryan Parker, Garett Ross and Scott Shpeley along with Vancouver based cast member Gaelan Beatty will be joined by three understudies and one additional actor from New York City, as well as an assistant stage manager.
