Originally created with Center support for the 2012 FringeArts Festival, Georgia Tech Arts now presents Thaddeus Phillips' Red-Eye to Havre de Grace at the Ferst Center for the Arts.

Produced by 2002 Pew Fellow Thaddeus Philiips, Red-Eye to Havre de Grace is an original musical about the delirious final days of Edgar Allen Poe's life, which he spent traveling by train between New York and Richmond. With creative input from Minneapolis-based composers Jeremy and David Wilhelm, actors Ean Sheehy and Sophie Bortolussi, and Teller, of magic duo Penn & Teller, Red-Eye to Havre de Grace has been praised by New York Times critic Charles Isherwood as being "among the most original musical theater works I've seen in years."
