DICK: After Melville Created by Kirsten Harvey and Dana Savage

About This Show

A dark soul. A dreadful menace. A deadly obsession. An epic story of the blue sea. All packed into one massive show. In a monomaniac night of Moby Dick fused with the ungodly love child of I Love Dick and Shania Twain, this show explores the steal-your-heart-drive-you-crazy-make-you-want-to-vomit kind of obsession that keeps you hunting and fucking for thousands of years. We are imagining a world–not a world without men, but a world in which we don’t have to ask ‘where did they go?’ Whale, shmale, Ishmael. Will we drown? Probably not. Moby Dick! Moby Dick! Moby Dick!
