This action-packed production is built to bring you along for the ride with Ishamel, Queequeg and the crew as the famed Captain Ahab sets out to find and kill the giant sea creature that gravely injured him once before. Acclaimed Lookingglass ensemble member David Catlin (The Little Prince), who also serves on the Northwestern faculty, directs his own adaptation of this timeless tale of adventure and obsession.

An evocative tale of loyalty, belonging and courage based on the Mowgli stories of Rudyard Kipling, Jungalbook by Edward Mast brings to life characters both contemporary and timeless. Held together by the Law of the Jungal, the animals become adventurous teens who must navigate the animal gangs and finally confront their greatest enemy. Directed by acclaimed Northwestern faculty member Betsy Quinn, this creative intertwining of the exotic jungle and the intense street life of the city was awarded the Distinguished Play Award by the American Alliance for Theatre and Education.
