Official Description

“We are all in the belly of the whale…” From the creative team behind A.R.T.’s 2015 production of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 comes a new musical adaptation of Moby-Dick. As Ishmael, Captain Ahab, and his crew pursue the elusive great white whale aboard the Pequod, Herman Melville’s nineteenth-century vision of America collides head-on with the present. “Dave Malloy breaks many of the rules that have accrued around American musical theater, and Ms. Chavkin has been making enormously inventive, and often wildly experimental, work for years.” – The New York Times.
