"Red-Eye to Havre de Grace" reveals the man behind the figure of Edgar Allen Poe.
“Red-Eye to Havre de Grace,” playing Feb. 13 to 16 at the Emerson/Paramount Center Mainstage by theater collective Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental, is a spellbinding, visually stunning depiction of the mysterious last days of Edgar Allan Poe. A tense exploration of grief, loneliness, and the pitfalls of genius, the musical quickly draws in the audience and doesn’t let go.

Overall, the concert’s refreshing nature was maximized by its choice of pieces and the fact that, unlike many concerts of similar theme, it was not dominated by the one or two Latin composers who happen to have reached a relatively wide audience. It even chose to exclude the work of Spanish-born Isaac Albeníz, choosing to focus rather on lesser-known modern Central and South American composers.
The playbill of the American Theater Company’s performance of “columbinus”—a show exploring the mass shooting that took place in the Colorado high school in 1999—included a map of all school shootings in the U.S. since Columbine, the shockingly numerous dots like bullet holes through the country.
