The Night Hart Crane Kissed Me

  • Helen Gardiner Phelan Playhouse 79A Saint George Street Toronto, ON, M5S 3L8 Canada (map)

The story of queer Jazz Age poet, Hart Crane, whirls us through a mythic landscape of New York: the docks at night, the vaudeville theatres, burlesque houses and boxing matches. A century later, three young artists chronicle Crane's final voyage across the sea while navigating their own uncharted waters. The Night Hart Crane Kissed Me combines poetry, biography, live music, magic, physical theatre and stage combat in an exploration of the Poet's role in a society that continues to undermine and undervalue its artists.
