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 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.

You will find several places to eat along Division street west of Ashland. Smoke Daddy is about 1800 West Division. On the cheap side, if you want a hot dog joint that has what I regard as the best Italian sausage in Chicago, drive north on Ashland a short distance for Choppers. Get the sausage with hot giardiniera. Shakes are good, too.Season on the Line dining • Sep 15 2014 star this tip starred

A huge fan of this genre of music (alt-country, roots, americana, what-have-you), I was excited to see my first House show. The band did not disappoint, amazing musicians all. And Corrie Feuerstein as the tumbleweed was double-plus fantastisch. The story? Well, not so much. It seemed like, with the number of tunes included, that the story was just time filler in between songs. There were some funny bits throughout the "book" portion, Anderson Lawfer's host had me laughing out loud, but I found myself wanting them to hurry up and get to the next song already. I would love to see a concert with this cast as the band and on this beautifully realized set. And this is where my experience seems to jibe with nearly all the House reviews I've read -- I enjoyed myself immensely, but found the story somewhat lacking.

I'm really glad I went to see this show. It was like watching someone's dream sequence and picking out what the symbolism represented in that person's life in order to comprehend their story and what it reveals about them and the consequences of...continued
Sadly reflective and yet hilariously surreal, the show mixes rock biography, live music and stunning visual effects to tell a tripped out tale of the demise of America’s last living cowboy.
