TONIGHT'S 7:30 p.m. PERFORMANCE OF Moby Dick IS STILL ON. FOR MORE INFO CALL THE BOX OFFICE AT (315) 443-3275
Alive with a soundscape of 18 authentic sea shanties and performed by an ensemble of nine, this highly physical adaption cuts to the core of Melville's searing narrative and plays with the fury of a Nantucket sleigh ride. A young man seeks adventure on a whaling vessel and finds himself a pawn in an obsessive pursuit of vengeance that threatens death and destruction for all.
"Suffice it to say that the characters therein created and the power of their words erase the need for tricky convention, and we are given a theater experience of mythic proportions." Tony Curulla, The Post Standard
"The play belongs to Kurt Ehrmann, whose manic portrayal of Captain Ahab enthralls, frightens and captivates in turn.." Greg Cwik, Green Room Reviews
