Red-Eye to Havre de Grace 
Ferst Center for the Arts April 14 - 16  

Set in September 1849, Red-Eye to Havre de Grace follows Edgar Allan Poe and the odd details surrounding his mysterious last days. Director Thaddeus Phillips of Lucidity Suitcase joins with musical duo Wilhelm Bros. & Co. for this new musical, informed  by 19th Century train routes, historical accounts, and Poe's own writing to create a haunting and spellbinding tale. An Off-Broadway hit -- Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called it "a feast of entrancing visual allurements" --  this is the perfect show for Poe fans and musical theater fans alike.

JAZZ SONGSTRESS!

Poised. Radiant. Captivating. The words of praise for GRAMMY-winning CÚcile McLorin Salvant far outstrip her years of experience - a testament to her studied, stunning command of blues, jazz, and classical vocabularies. Born in Miami to a French mother and a Haitian father, Salvant immersed herself in music from age five, eventually honing her vocal chops in Aix-en-Provence, France. It's only fitting that an artist of such unique origins would conclude the winding musical journey that is the Rialto Series, ending the season on a beautiful, high note.

OPENS TOMORROW!
 
Sex with Strangers is the highly anticipated new production by playwright Laura Eason. Olivia, an attractive, gifted but obscure novelist, is unexpectedly snowbound in a secluded cabin with Ethan, a wildly successful, bad boy blogger turned author. Opposites attract and the chemistry is hot. After a weekend of passion, their literary futures are intimately intertwined, and both must confront the complications of reinventing themselves when the past is just a click away. This sensuous and provocative comedy about fame, cyber identity, and big ambition asks: what would you do, and who would you become, to get what you want?
