Set sail for a whale of a tale with young sailor Ishmael, first mate Starbuck, and Captain Ahab as they voyage across the seven seas in search of the legendary white whale Moby Dick. Three gifted actors use their bodies, ever-switching hats, and a variety of musical instruments to create excitement and suspense. A double bass and cello creatively depict everything from the creaking of the ship’s oars, to the moaning of the hull, to the elusive whale himself.

Brimming over with music, wit, and imagination, Moby Dick has been hailed by The New York Times as "a luminous and engrossing" theatrical event.

Anyone interested in learning more about the presentation is invited to read Moby Dick by Herman Melville before or after attending the show.
