NOV 7 - 12, 2011

Herman Melville’s whirling, eddying tale will have you hanging on every word, from the wary description of Ishmael’s seedy lodgings in New Bedford, MA to his awed picture of the maelstrom which churns the cursed Pequod to its watery grave. Catching the mischievous humor and wisdom of Ishmael’s commentary, Lovett holds audiences captivated during this classic tale of a mythic sea monster, the vengeful Captain Ahab, and their epic ocean journey aboard The Pequod. Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh’s musical accompaniment provides a poetic counterpoint to Ahab’s raving, fanatical quest. You can almost feel the spray break across the bow.

"Lovett's capacity to hold an audience is remarkable. His voice control and subtle shifts of expression and movement seem effortless" –The Guardian
