Moby Dick

Based on the novel Moby Dick by Herman Melville.

Renowned for their celebrated, hilarious Beckett prose productions, Gare St. Lazare Players Ireland take on one of the greatest novels ever written: Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Performed by Conor Lovett (Best Actor at 2010 Irish Times Theatre Awards) with musical accompaniment by Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh, this gripping solo performance follows Captain Ahab on his journey of revenge in pursuit of the titular white whale. Told from the perspective of Ishmael—who signs up on Ahab’s ship, The Pequod—this is an adventure story of biblical proportions. The Irish Examiner raves, “Moby Dick is a must-see. Lovett holds us spellbound as he captures the humor as well as the wisdom of Melville.”

It may surprise you to learn that Stephen King didn't write 'The Shining' and Sister Helen Prejean didn't write 'Dead Man Walking.' Even more, you may be startled to learn that Herman Melville didn't write 'Moby Dick' and Louisa May Alcott didn't have a hand in 'Little Women.' Well, of course they did--except when it came to turning the works into operas. Then, respectively, Mark Campbell and Terrence McNally took over, as did Gene Scheer and Mark Adamo.

Don't expect a fluffy Disney tale here, this Mulan is visceral. She is a warrior, a fighter, a woman who survived in a very male world for ten years without discovery.

British-Congolese singer Jordan Mackampa creates soul-soaked, indie-driven tracks that swim in the sounds and stories of the cities he's inhabited over the years. His searing songs are documents of his life as an outsider, and his sound is a melting pot of cultures that stretch from his birthplace in the Republic of Congo to a hip hop-obsessed childhood in North London to teen years spent immersed in indie-rock in Coventry, UK. He combines his timeless vocals with catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics to create an exciting hybrid of alternative pop and soul which will enchant and uplift in equal measure.

Cetology (pronounced a?oesee-TOL-oh-jeea??) is the study of whales. Cetology is also a new play written and performed by Nelia Miller and directed by Michele Stine, with live looping music composed by Alexandra Plattos Sulack and stunning animated, silhouette-style projections by Jenna Jo Pawlicki. This solo show warps the destructive story of Moby Dick and the selfless story of Jonah's whale in an attempt to understand being left behind by the ones we love. As Ahab's wife and Jonah's mother, Miller harnesses the power of women's anger and the delicacy of exercising that rage in this powerful story of love, loss, and...whales. Cetology brings an intimate perspective to the conversation around how women are expected to comport themselves and dampen their emotions to suit traditional constructs of romantic partnership and motherhood.

The much-anticipated MOBY DICK (A Musical Reckoning), from the team that brought you NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 in 2015, has finally surfaced at the Loeb Drama Center of the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge. Based on the iconic American novel by Herman Melville, the three-and-a-half-hour-long musical endeavors to theatricalize about 40 of the book's 135 chapters, taking a much larger bite from the source material than the mere 70- page section of Leo Tolstoy's WAR AND PEACE adapted for THE GREAT COMET. Oh, would that Dave Malloy (music, book, lyrics, and orchestrations) and Rachel Chavkin (director, co-developer) had approached this project with such surgical skill, rather than casting the broadest of nets upon the waters.
