Having last worked at NYTW in 2006 in his lively and raucous tour de force ¡El Conquistador!, NYTW Usual SuspectThaddeus 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 final 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 stranger's 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.
Red-Eye to Havre de Grace 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.
