WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

NYTW Usual Suspect Thaddeus Phillips returns to the Workshop with yet another triumph of invention from this singular theatre-maker. Having last worked at NYTW in 2006 on his lively and raucous tour de force ¡El Conquistador!, Phillips 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.
