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
