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.

After being shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria, aristocratic-born Viola assumes her twin brother is dead and takes on the identity of a young male page named Cesario in an attempt to gain work in an unfamiliar land. Her compromised identity puts her at the center of a complicated love triangle that is hilarious and melancholy, and always entertaining. Under the direction of award-winning Northwestern faculty member Mary Poole, Shakespeare’s dark comedy is a delightful adventure in the timeless human folly of mistaken identity and misguided hearts.
