After our day in the Barbican Library, we were treated to a show at the Catalyst Theatre.  It was a Canadian production called Nevermore, that  will travel to NYC after London.  This was a humerous musical tale about Edgar Allen Poe's life and the myths that surrounded him.  Definately out of the ordinary twist to musicals and captivating with the costumes and lighting. One could  tell the exact character the actor/actress was portraying by the costumes. Elmira was defined by her tulip shaped dress, whom Poe had drawn pictures of under a tulip tree. One could say that  this production is very Tim Burton like but on  the flip side, Tim Burton was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe.
