A Theatrical Adaptation of Herman Melville’s American Epic Novel
Give way! Thar she blows, the all-destroying White Whale! The sails shake and the pitiless sea awaits. The great floodgates of the wonderworld have swung open… Ready yourself to make war on the horrors of the deep!
The Zoot Theatre Company brings Moby Dick to life with Bunraku style puppetry, movement driven special effects, and a size XL whale to swim the stage. Straight from the pages of Melville’s American epic, Moby Dick is the classic telling of what happens when Man’s obsession meets with the primal forces of nature… Whales. Destruction. Water. Wrath. What more could you ask for in your friendly neighborhood puppet show?
