Nevermore, The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe
by Doctuh Mistuh Productions

Oct. 21 - Nov. 05, 2016

In keeping with its mission of bringing Off-Broadway and lesser known shows to Austin, Doctuh Mistuh Productions in association with Austin Playhouse will present the regional premiere of the Off-Broadway show, NEVERMORE, THE IMAGINARY LIFE AND MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF EDGAR ALLAN POE, for a three-week run, October 21-November 5. The production will play at Austin Playhouse in ACC Highland.  

NEVERMORE, which originally produced by the Catalyst Theatre of Edmonton, Canada in 2009 and subsequently toured internationally, played at New Victory Theatre in New York in 2010, where it received very enthusiastic audiences and sold out houses. The show enjoyed another successful engagement at the New Victory Theatre in 2015 featuring 6 or the 7 original cast member. Nevermore is written and composed by Jonathan Christenson, Artistic Director of the Catalyst Theatre.  

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.’”

Doctuh Mistuh’s Michael McKelvey (Director) and Glenda Barnes (Costume Design) will join forces with Austin Playhouse’s Mike Toner (Set Designer) to bring this unique and powerful theatrical event to the stage. The show will star Tyler Jones as Edgar Allen Poe with Suzanne Balling, Joey Banks, Matt Connely, Jess Hughes, Stephen Mercantel and Megan Rabuse.

Doctuh Mistuh Productions made its debut in the Austin Theatre scene with EVIL DEAD, THE MUSICAL in October of 2009. Since then, DMP has gone on to entertain its loyal followers with the mission of bringing unique shows of quality that push the envelope and may not get produced otherwise.

Austin Playhouse is a professional theatre in its 17th season. Under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Don Toner and Artistic Director Lara Toner Haddock, Austin Playhouse has grown from a three-play season on the campus of Concordia University, to a year-round operation producing an average of eight plays a year.
