About This Show

First presented in New York City in May 2003, with subsequent performances in Minneapolis and Chicago, Christopher Moore’s celebrated adaptation of Herman Melville’s classic story is coming to multiple locations this summer including Breezy Point in Northrern Minnesota. Moby-Dick comes alive in this one-actor/one hour performance, using Melville’s words. Follow the journey and visit www.MobyDickLives.com for more information.

“(Moore) guides us through the tale with clarity and compelling assiduity and real passion; he makes Melville’s vivid language come alive in this tour de force recreation of the tragic voyage of the Pequod in pursuit of the great white whale. Between Melville’s extraordinary words and Moore’s insistent, understated performance we see and feel it all…”

“By turns humorous, morose and highly dramatic, Moore’s one-man take on Melville is refreshingly straightforward, trusting in the material to tell its tale. It’s an accessible story told with affection and restraint.”

– St. Paul Pioneer Press

“This is a fine piece of dramatic storytelling, and a performance that’s notably restrained in the face of such grand material. Moore makes a soulful Ishmael, finding a low-key affability that evokes a richer version of Robin Williams’s quiet mode.”
