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.

If you don't live in Hyde Park, getting supper can be a little bit of a problem because you have to get to the area through rush hour traffic, resulting in a short window of time to eat before the show. There's nothing much around the theatre, so you have to eat somewhere else, then drive to the theatre.An Iliad dining • Nov 21 2013 star this tip starred

Water by the Spoonful was a beautifully written play. It was an emotional experience . Every cast member brought you into their world of addiction. As serious as the subject was, there was also plenty of humor to go around . It is the 2nd story of a trilogy written by a very talented woman Quiara Hudes. It's on for another week, go see it. You won't be disappointed!

By Quiara Alegría Hudes
Directed by Henry Godinez_
Water by the Spoonful_ takes a painfully honest and surprisingly humorous look at the unconventional communities we create when we seek redemption from our personal failings. Dancing artfully from story to story, playwright Quiara AlegrÌa Hudes unlocks an intimate portrait of both a family and the members of an online recovery community as they struggle with the harrowing consequences of addiction. An expansive play that covers the distance from Puerto Rico to Japan, Philadelphia to San Diego, and the virtual world to the physical, _Water by the Spoonful _ties together the lives of a host of unforgettable characters in a play of genuine warmth about forgiveness and redemption.
