Backstage Video: Moby-Dick Load-In Time-Lapse – American Repertory Theater

Stage Directions • Theatre Buzz • December 11, 2019

In this Backstage Video from American Repertory Theater you can see a time-lapse of Scenic Designer Mimi Lien’s set for Moby-Dick being loaded in. From the creative team behind A.R.T.’s 2015 production of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 comes an epic musical adaptation of Herman Melville’s iconic American novel. As the egomaniacal Captain Ahab drives his crew across the seas in pursuit of the great white whale, Melville’s nineteenth-century vision of America collides head-on with the present.
