Take a dark, mysterious, musical journey into the heart and soul of Edgar Allan Poe, America's first truly visionary poet. 

This story of love, personal demons and self-discovery delves into the mind of Poe with disturbing yet relatable charm. 

Poe’s poetry is transformed into soaring musical numbers creating a timeline that lures the audience into his world.

"The songs range from lovely ballads that bear a whisper of Sondheim to rousing anthems and poem-songs blending strains of gospel, pop and rock."
