When Texas Light Opera (TLO) was founded, its principle desire was to popularize classical work and music materials through new theatrical productions. Recently, TLO was presented with multiple ATAC Awards for its production of “Road to Madness,” which was about the life of F. Scott Fitzgerald. TLO now brings to life another famous literary artist, American poet and macabre icon, Edgar Allan Poe. To deepen our understanding of this most powerful, charismatic and complex poet of early American literature, Texas Light Opera and Aria Creative Productions, in association with the Roxie Theatre, will present "Edgar Allan Poe’s NEVERMORE," a bio-drama on the master of macabre himself. This musical is a dark and romantic portrayal of Poe’s life, told thru a series of dream-like vignettes that take the audience on a whirlwind thru his life, as well as presents ten of his most brilliant poems as musical numbers, including “Evening Star,” “Annabelle Lee,” and “The Raven.” This production will be the Texas premiere of this musical. The cast includes Catie Carlisle, Morgan Clyde, Nicole Erwin, Erin Polewski, and Rebecca Trinidad. Joseph Urick plays Edgar, as well as directs.
