Adapted from Herman Melville's white whale of a novel, Moby Dick, this love letter to American theatre finds the book's Pequod boat crew transformed into the Bad Settlement Theatre Company. Between their rundown surroundings, flagging finances, a newbie of a stage manager and an artistic director who's consumed with the singular focus of putting on the first-ever flawless production of Moby Dick, it's safe to say that this crew is definitely in deep water. A drama that sways towards satire and is populated with bold, scrappy, lovable characters, Season on the Line is a sincere tribute to the trials, tribulations and triumphs that abound in the world of theatre.

Incredible performances (singing and dancing) by everyone. Put this on your must-see list! Best wishes for a long run. Minor lighting issues last night didn't dim my enthusiasm!

The music and the voices were spectacular. I was really really impressed. The three leads were not only talented actors - they were all so beautiful!
The cast did quite a bit with a very small space - every seat in the house was a great seat....continued
In its first Chicago production since the national tour, Bailiwick Chicago’s newly envisioned production of Elton John and Tim Rice’s _Aida _features stunning choreography by the modern dance company Deeply Rooted Dance Theater, a six-piece band, and a cast of 20 talented actors, singers, and dancers. _Aida _ tells the story of a high-ranking Egyptian soldier, engaged to the Pharaoh’s daughter and next in line for the throne, who falls in love with the Nubian slave Aida. When he discovers that she is the daughter of the King of Nubia, each is forced to choose between love for country and love for each other. With a driving pop-rock score by Elton John, the story challenges audiences to consider the question: “What would you sacrifice for eternal love?”
