Synopsis
Winner of four Jeff Awards, including Best Production, and fresh off a national tour, the critically-acclaimed MOBY DICK returns to the Lookingglass stage in this harrowing and intoxicating exploration of revenge, obsession, and destiny.
Madness rages like the angry sea when man pits himself against leviathan in Herman Melville’s epic and poetic tale, furiously reimagined by director David Catlin (Lookingglass Alice).
Climb aboard the Pequod with Ishmael, Starbuck, and the intrepid crew on a voyage into the darkest reaches of the human psyche with an insatiably driven Captain Ahab at the helm in reckless pursuit of the legendary white whale.

Critic Reviews
★★★★. Catlin’s ‘Moby Dick’ rises to the short list of great Lookingglass productions of the past two decades.
The Chicago Tribune
A triumph of grand theatrical imagination, deep thought, superb acting and eye-popping, ingeniously deployed physical daring.
The Chicago Sun-Times
