Nevermore

The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe

 

Nevermore – The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe is a unique and wildly theatrical musical play 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).

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 unexplained 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.”

Originally produced by Catalyst Theatre of Edmonton, Canada in 2009 to commemorate the bicentennial of Poe’s birth (January 19, 1809), Nevermore has toured extensively, playing acclaimed engagements throughout Canada and in London at the prestigious Barbican Center. The show’s engagement in 2010 at New Victory Theatre was greeted by wildly enthusiastic audiences and sold-out houses. Since its first New York appearance in 2010, Nevermore been expanded and revised, with several new songs added and structural changes made to the original script.

Nevermore is written, composed, and directed by Catalyst Theatre’s 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, sound design by Wade Staples, and voice, speech and text direction by Betty Moulton.

Six of the seven original Canadian NEVERMORE cast members will return for this engagement – Gaelan Beatty, Shannon Blanchett, Beth Graham, Ryan Parker, Garett Ross, and Scott Shpeley. American actress Lindsie VanWinkle joins the Canadian cast to play the seventh principal role. The company understudies are Americans Jennifer Byrne, Stephen Cerf, and Rob Morrison.

Nevermore is produced by Radio Mouse Entertainment (M. Kilburg Reedy and Jason E. Grossman), Martin Hummel, Caiola Productions (Rose Caiola and Luigi Caiola), Terry Schnuck, Susan Jaffe Tane, Hernreich-Horvath Productions (Robert Hernreich and Holly Horvath), and Catalyst Theatre in association with Fireboat Productions (Gordon Stanley, Mary Cossette, and Meredith Lynsey Schade. The associate producers are Carol L. Bixler and Deepa Desai.

InJoy Entertainment, in collaboration with Vice President William Welles' New Goth City website, was brought onboard to manage "alternative lifestyle marketing" to reach out to the Goth and Steampunk communities and its members.

★★★★
“An uplifting and thoroughly entertaining show which has clearly succeeded in appealing to a young audience"
- Whatsonstage

“The show has rightly been called ‘dazzling’, with sensational dancers throwing off enthusiastic, good-humoured and unashamedly crowd-pleasing moves. In fact, they might equally be called comic actors, so accomplished are their nudge-wink self-deprecating super-sexiness. Agile, virile and good fun”
-The Stage

“The six men show off their most vaulting jumps and backflips, their most impressively slick pirouettes. It's exactly the shameless display the audience have paid to see, especially when it's served up with golden songs like Jailhouse Rock or Tainted Love."
- The Guardian

  666 DSM:
A Dark Comedy About Society, Sanity, & Spirituality


Written and Performed by Douglas de Souza, Directed by Cindy Sibilsky.

"A deeply-felt and virtuosic shout in the darkness." -John Cameron Mitchell (Creator/Director, Hedwig and the Angry Inch/Shortbus).

NYC Writer/Performer Douglas de Souza enacts 6 characters (An Artist, A Trickster, A Promoter, A Conspiracy Theorist, A Raver, A Seeker) with 6 different mental disorders inspired by the DSM (Bi-Polar, Nicotine/Alcohol Addiction, Cocaine Addiction, Paranoid Personality, Hallucinogen Dependence, and Unknown). This darkly comedic show is a satire on how our society perceives mental "dis-orders," as well as the sanity (or lack thereof) in things both sacred and profane.
