WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
What ever happened to Moby Dick? He's beached in Santa Monica at The Broad Stage for a multimedia voyage into the contemporary truth of Herman Melville's epic tale. Steered by award-winning director David Schweizer, this one-time-only event takes a uniquely Southern California look at the literary masterpiece, featuring an unpredictable variety show of theatrical performance, quotes, misquotes, and cutting-edge science. The evening culminates a month-long citywide initiative of the Los Angeles Public Library to pursue the great white whale.
