POE the musical had its world premiere staged readings in October 2018,
in Salem, Oregon, thanks to a sponsorship by Chemeketa Community College.
As you might suspect from the show’s title, this musical celebrates the
life and works of the iconic American author, Edgar A. Poe.
Eddy rises from the grave to repair his reputation, which had been sullied by Rufus Griswold.
With Death helping him step back into his life, he is able to reconcile the choices he made
in order to find peace in the beyond.
The show’s libretto and score were written and composed by Rachel Wolf. The production was directed and music directed by Ms. Wolf as well.
A new creative team will form in 2019 and the lead role will be re-cast.
