Moby Dick - 2019 - Boston

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.
