Red-Eye to Havre de Grace

“The last, distraught days of Edgar Allan Poe are charted with spellbinding vitality.
At times funny, at times heartbreaking, and from quirky start to haunting finish, a feast of entrancing visual allurements, this exquisite show is among the most original musical theater works I’ve seen in years.”

– Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

“Stylish and Imaginative.”
-Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

"GRADE A! The souful, bravura production will make you both happier and wiser."
-Jason Clark, Entertainment Weekly

NYTW Usual Suspect Thaddeus Phillips (¡El Conquistador!) teams up with the Minneapolis-based musical duo Wilhelm Bros. & Co. to create a visually striking and sonically complex action-opera about Edgar Allan Poe’s mysterious last days. Set in September of 1849, Red-Eye to Havre de Grace follows Poe on his last lecture tour from Virginia to New York, focusing on a stop in Maryland when a train conductor saw Poe wearing a strangers clothes headed south, where he would die just days later. This new musical, informed by 19th Century train routes, historical accounts and Poe’s own writing, creates a spellbinding sketch of a man you soon realize you know little about.
