Nantucket Sleigh Ride - 2019 - Off-Broadway

A Nantucket Sleigh Ride is an old whaling term: "Sailors would harpoon a whale and the whale would drag the sailors on a frantic race across the ocean - for hours - for days -until the whale had died or the sailors had drowned."

In his attempts to recover a memory of an event that happened on that 'far away island' 35 years before, NANTUCKET SLEIGH RIDE plunges a New York playwright-turned- venture capitalist into a whirlpool of a giant lobster, Roman Polanski, a pornography ring, Walt Disney, a murder, stranded children, and Jorge Luis Borges, with the most unexpected results.

Nantucket Sleigh Ride Off-Broadway Cast


by Michael Dale - March 19, 2019
Sturdy, richly-voiced and subtly droll, John Larroquette is one of those actors with a wonderful talent for creating enormously funny moments by taking in the madness surrounding him and cutting it down with a look or an utterance.
