This visceral new version of Herman Melville's whale of a tale takes Moby Dick in a new direction, with the high-flying help of the aerial and acrobatic performers of the Actors Gymnasium. 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.

I think the people who wrote the other reviews must not really understand the musical theatre genre or go to many musical performances.
I thought the musical was beautifully written and wonderfully performed. The talent of these students was amazing, and I had no trouble understanding any of it. I will agree that it was too long. There were many messages in the play regarding religion and society which I found interestingly woven into the plot. And how creative to tell the story of the flood from Noah's wife!
I would definitely recommend this musical. This talented cast should be seen!

Everyone’s got a little baggage…
Not Wanted on the Voyage is a provocative new musical about an ordinary family faced with extraordinary circumstances. Secrets lie just beneath the surface in this darkly funny, modern re-imagining of the Great Flood – the first time the world ended. Dynamic Broadway writers Neil Bartram and Brian Hill have teamed up with award-winning director Amanda Dehnert to create an epic production, complete with rain, fire, magic and a soaring, eclectic score.
The production is part of Northwestern University’s American Music Theatre Project (AMTP), which is committed to the development and production of new musicals by leading professional artists.
