A new musical about how a band of hippies, mystics, and visionaries changed the world. Set in 1973, in the formative years of the ecology movement, Project Ahab converts Melville’s classic story of a man bent on killing a whale to that of a man determined to stop the killing of whales; or, “Ahab goes after the whalers.”
Building on the success of last season’s musical epic, Red Virgin, writer Gary Graves, and director John Patrick Moore team up with musical director Ben Euphrat.
