BroadwayWorld.com is reporting that Edmonton’s Catalyst Theatre‘s hit musical about Edgar Allan Poe, Nevermore, will be produced in New York City in January 2015. The play will begin performances at New World Stages on Wednesday, January 14, 2015, with an official opening night scheduled for Sunday, January 25, 2015.
Nevermore is written, composed, and directed by Jonathan Christenson and designed by Bretta Gerecke. The production features choreography by Laura Krewski and sound design is by Wade Staples. Six of the seven original cast members will return to NYC for this engagement.
Originally produced in 2009 to commemorate the bicentennial of Poe’s birth (January 19, 1809), Nevermore has toured extensively, including sold out limited engagements at London’s Barbican Center and New York’s New Victory Theatre in 2010. Nevermore has been expanded since its first New York appearance in 2010, with several new songs added and structural revisions made to the original script.
Nevermore in NYC is produced by Radio Mouse Entertainment (M. Kilburg Reedy and Jason E. Grossman), Martin Hummel, Caiola Productions, Terry Schnuck, Susan Jaffe Tane, and Hernreich-Horvath Productions in association with Catalyst Theatre. The associate producers include Fireboat Productions, Carol L. Bixler, and Deepa Desai. Click here for the NYC Nevermore website.
