Sometimes "livin' large" is no kind of living at all. At least not when you're tipping the scales at 600 pounds like Charlie, the moving (but nearly immobile) protagonist of The Whale. Since the death of his boyfriend, Charlie has confined himself to his small Idaho apartment and is eating himself to death. His only friend, a nurse, nearly kills him with kindness while his only acquaintance, a troubled young missionary, is determined to rescue his soul. Unwilling to seek medical treatment despite his rapidly declining health, Charlie instead attempts to reconnect with the teenage daughter he hasn't seen in 15 years. Obie Award-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter (A Bright New Boise) wrote this humorous and devastating drama that won the 2013 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "For the SpeakEasy Stage Company’s current production, a vivacious ensemble creates a community of absolutely irresistible characters, capturing all the life and energy of this Tony Award-winning musical." --<em>Boston Globe</em>
- "The characters are moving (in many senses of the word), and what will really stick with you is the pure energy and joy of the music and dancing in this marvelous production." --<em><a target="_blank" href="http://artsfuse.org/83368/fuse-theater-review-the-music-and-dance-of-in-the-heights-pure-energy/">The Arts Fuse</a></em>
- "Director Paul Daigneault captures the essence of the Broadway show, thanks in large part to the performance of Diego Klock-Perez as Usnavi in the role originated by Miranda. His rapping and overall presence provide the focal point of a high-spirited, sexy production. The ensemble work — dancing as well as acting — and the musicianship are pretty much universally the same high caliber as we’ve come to expect from SpeakEasy. Hats off to the whole behind-the-scenes team as well as the actors, with a particular shout-out to costume designer Elisabetta Polito." --<a target="_blank" href="http://artery.wbur.org/2013/05/15/town-heights">WBUR</a>
The show runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission.
