Description:

A haunting musical adventure into the psyche of a composer trying to create an opera based on the classic novel Moby Dick. Desperately fighting a degenerative disease eating away at his mind, each day the artist must rely on a tape recorder hung around his neck and a muse born of his imagination to instruct him on his work. Grammy Award-winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist Rinde Eckert displays his full creative force in this frenzied, funny and moving play.

 

“Every element of Eckert’s play is masterly – his performance…poignant, his music varied and lovely, his dancing divine, his musings profound.” - The New Yorker

 

“Dazzling” - Los Angeles Times

 

[Eckert is] “an American loner – eccentric with touches of Bertolt Brecht, Samuel Beckett and Tom Waits” - The New York Times
