New York Theatre Workshop to Present Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental's Red-Eye to Havre de Grace
The action-opera focuses on writer Edgar Allan Poe's final days.
New York Theatre Workshop has announced that Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental's Red-Eye to Havre de Grace will begin performances April 22 at New York Theatre Workshop and run through June 1, with an opening night set for May 1. Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental is created by Thaddeus Phillips, Jeremy Wilhelm, David Wilhelm, Geoff Sobelle, and Sophie Bortolussi, with Ean Sheehy. Music is by Wilhelm Bros. & Co. and direction and stage design by Thaddeus Phillips.
Red-Eye to Havre de Grace is described as "a visually striking and sonically complex action-opera." The story follows Edgar Allan Poe on his last lecture tour, from Virginia to New York, using historical accounts and Poe's own writing to create a picture of his mysterious final days.
The cast of Red-Eye to Havre de Grace includes Ean Sheehy, Alessandra Larson, Jeremy Wilhelm, and David Wilhelm.
The design team includes creative consultation by Teller, choreography by Sophie Bortulussi, lighting design by Drew Billiau, sound design by Rob Kaplowitz, and costume design by Rosemarie Mckelvey.
The Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental is a theater creation team that uses "rough" media, documentary footage, transformational scenography, improvisation, and research to create theatrical epics.
