The Chicago-based Lookingglass Theatre last presented on the Alliance Stage in 2010 with their imaginative production, Lookingglass Alice. Moby Dick is adapted and directed by David Catlin and will run on the Alliance Stage October 12 - 30, 2016. Opening night is Wednesday, October 19, 2016. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Melville's classic tale of man's obsessive battle against nature comes to life in â€œa triumph of grand theatrical imagination, deep thought, superb acting, and eye-popping, ingeniously deployed physical daringâ€? (Chicago Sun-Times). Bold trapeze and acrobatic work turn this seafaring American classic into a thrilling experiment in aerial storytelling. Audiences will set sail for an epic adventure with Captain Ahab and his crew in this harrowing quest for the great white whale. This jaw-dropping production delighted Chicago audiences, young and old.
Moby Dick stars Jamie Abelson (Ishmael), Christopher Donahue (Ahab), and Adeoye Mabogunje (Queequeg). Supporting cast includes Kelley Abell, Walter Owen Briggs, Cordelia Dewdney, Micah Figueroa, Kasey Foster, Raymond Fox, and Javen Ulambayar.
The creative team includes Set Designer Courtney O'Neill, Costume Designer Sully Ratke, Lighting Designer William C. Kirkham, Sound Designer & Composer Rick Sims, Aerial/Acrobatic Choreographer Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi, Dialect Coach Kathy Logelin, and Rigging Designer Isaac Schoepp.
