or, the whale is a play, a song, an operetta, a poetic response to Melville’s Moby Dick. It follows Captain Ahab as he follows his leg, and we follow too: follow the leg, follow Ahab, follow Melville and Juli Crockett out into the deep, and see what wonders await us there. Expect characters, songs, themes and threads from Drowned Horse Tavern and All Well to recur and reform and revolve. Be ready to draw your own constellation. “Have ye gone down to the springs of the sea or walked in the unfathomable deep? Have ye comprehended the vast expanse of the world? Tell me all this, if you know” -Job 38:16-18
