Moby Dick is a captivating story embedded in our culture; even those who have not read it are familiar with the tale of Ahab’s obsession, just as Ishmael, Ahab and Moby Dick are household names for the general public.
This emblematic conflict within the man and against the elements cries out to be told in a fashion which will reach theater audiences on the scale and scope of epic dramas such as Les Misérables. This story speaks to generation upon generation because Ahab’s conflict with the whale is symbolic of the primal conflict humans have against the elements and fate. The thrill, the devastation, and the eventual death can only be justly told on a scale and scope of an epic drama.
