Theater director, Thaddeus Phillips steps onstage to create a deceptively simple stage voyage that takes audiences to the frontiers of Tunisia, Bosnia, Cuba, Brazil, Colombia, Bali, Czech Republic, Israel, Jordan, Serbia, Slovenia and Mexico. RED-EYE to HAVRE de GRACE
On September 27, 1849, Edgar Allan Poe set out on a lecture tour from Virginia to New York. Days later a train conductor saw Poe in Havre de Grace, Maryland, wearing a strangers clothing and heading south to Baltimore where he died on October 7. Innovative stage director Thaddeus Phillips teams up with the Minneapolis-based musical duo Wilhelm Bros. & Co.
to create an action-opera that follows the odd details surrounding Poes mysterious last days. Informed by 19th century train routes, historical accounts, and Poes letters to his mother-in-law Muddy, RED-EYE to HAVRE de GRACE comments on the nature of being an artist in America and casts Poe in a new light by exploring his writings on the gold rush, fools, furniture, and the universe.
