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.

We ate at Pettorino's, which adjoins the Goodman theater. Their food is pricey, and the shrimp in my seafood Louie salad had an unpleasant iodine taste. The black olives in the salad were straight out of a can and lacking in flavor.Brigadoon dining • Aug 19 2014 star this tip starred

Quotes & Highlights
“…Altogether riveting…" and “Highly Recommended.” —Chicago Sun-Times
We all know the story—or so we think—of a young man who unknowingly kills his father and marries his mother. Sophocles’ monumental treatment of this theme has been a staple of world theater for more than 2,000 years. In this bold and provocative re-telling of the myth, Goodman Artistic Associate and Tony Award- winning director and adaptor Frank Galati reimagines Sophocles’ tragedy, fusing it with the words and ideas of Sigmund Freud-the man whose revolutionary theories crossed the boundaries of science by using the art of myth, metaphor and dream to bring meaning to the ultimate human drama.
