Green Valley Theatre Company presents the West Coast Premiere of Nevermore  The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe.

Book, Lyrics & Music by Jonathan Christenson
Directed by Christopher Cook

Nevermore – The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe is dark and imaginative, combining haunting music, poetic storytelling, and stunning visual elements to tell the life story of iconic American writer Edgar Allan Poe. 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. Nevermore blurs the line between fact and fiction, exploring the events that shaped Poe’s character and career.
