BWW Review: MOBY DICK at Lookingglass Theatre Company
by Rachel Weinberg - Jun 22, 2017

Following a successful 2015 run, that great white whale Moby Dick has returned to Lookingglass in a highly physical, inventive, and visually compelling production that's fully in keeping with the company's aesthetic. David Catlin's adaptation of Herman Meville's sprawling novel surrounds audiences in the universe of those whalers on board the Pequod in search of that elusive creature. With Courtney O'Neill's artful and hand-crafted set design, the stage and audience reside in a whale 'skeleton,' which cleverly also becomes the structure of the ship. As is common with Lookingglass productions, Moby Dick also makes use of some talented, athletic performers who take on stunning acrobatic feats (choreography by The Actors Gymnasium's Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi). But like any voyage, Catlin's script has a number of slower, narration-heavy moments that lack much action. Moby Dick vacillates between moments of captivating artistry combined with heightened physicality and lengthy stretches of pure narration. (more...)
