Melville’s classic tale of man’s obsessive battle against nature comes to life in “a triumph of grand theatrical imagination, deep thought, superb acting, and eye-popping, ingeniously deployed physical daring” (Chicago Sun-Times). Bold trapeze and acrobatic work turn this seafaring American classic into a thrilling experiment in aerial storytelling. Set sail for an epic adventure with Captain Ahab and his crew in this harrowing quest for the great white whale. From Lookingglass Theatre Company (Lookingglass Alice), see the jaw-dropping production that delighted Chicago audiences, young and old.
Originally produced by Lookingglass Theatre Company in association with Actors Gymnasium in Chicago. This is a co-production with Arena Stage and South Coast Repertory.
