Lyrics EDGAR ALLAN POE
Book GRACE BARNES
Take a dark and mysterious journey into the life of Edgar Allan Poe. This imaginative musical uses Poe’s poetry and short stories as its base and his shifting obsession with the women in his life as its catalyst. With hauntingly beautiful melodies, Nevermore breathes new life into Poe’s work and explores a twisted true-life tale that is as bizarre as his classic stories of the macabre.
The role of EDGAR has been precast.
MUDDY (40+, mezzo): Virginia’s mother and Edgar’s surrogate mother. Muddy is stoic and is the grounded voice of reason.
MOTHER (40+, mezzo): Edgar’s mother. She died when Edgar was still a child. She is a haunting presence in Edgar’s life.
ELMIRA (mezzo): a southern belle. Edgar’s first and last love. Ranging in age from 17 to 40. Elmira is understanding, patient and a place of salvation.
VIRGINIA (soprano): age 13, Edgar’s bride and cousin. Virginia is youthful, naive and a source of inspiration for Edgar.
THE WHORE (Any Age, alto/belter): an embodiment of Edgar’s fantasy. A street wise woman who is insightful and compassionate.
