About This Show

1888, off the coast of New Bedford, Massachusetts. When a violent storm sinks their whaling ship, the four surviving souls — a young man in search of adventure, his older brother who has sworn to protect him, a captain at the end of a long career at sea, and a worldly first mate who has fallen from grace — each face a reckoning: How far will I go to stay alive? And can I live with the consequences?

Featuring music and lyrics by the Avett Brothers, Swept Away is written by Tony-winning writer John Logan, directed by Tony-winning director Michael Mayer, and choreographed by Tony nominee David Neumann.
