Associate Artistic Director Tammy here, and I’m getting seriously pumped for next week’s opening of Moby Dick.
You have your tickets, right?
If you answered “Yes!”, HOORAY! (And thanks: we can’t wait for you to see it!)
But, wait–did I hear a couple folks out there say they haven’t gotten tickets yet?
Let me see if I can change that for you. I present to you:
10 reasons to see Moby Dick at Know Theatre:
- Ahab! You saw what Rico Reid could do when given a time machine and a chip
on his shoulder in Harry & The Thief. Now see what happens when we give him a ship, a crew, and an insatiable need for vengeance as legendary Captain Ahab.
- Storytelling! If you love 19th Century literature, you want to see how it comes alive with this creative team.
- Action! If you think you hate 19th Century literature, come surprise yourself: this action-packed adventure will shake off your English 101 preconceptions within the first five minutes.
- Starbuck! Cincy Shakes veteran Justin McCombs takes his first walk on Know
Theatre’s boards and his portrayal of Starbuck will blow you away.
- Adventure! Aren’t you the least bit curious how Know intends to portray an epic seafaring adventure story, complete with high-impact whale hunting sequences, on our intimate stage?
- Music! The 8-man ensemble of Moby Dick pack a ton of talent onto Know’s stage, including powerful voices, which will sing you a collection of historical (and imaginative) sea shanties—ranging from bawdy drinking songs to haunting laments.
- Wesselman! Longtime Know Theatre & Cincy Fringe fans love Chris Wesselman for his comedic chops (and Serials! fans know that he’s a master of theatrical surprises). Come see what the man can do with some serious dramatic action.
- Hungerford! Come see what our new Artistic Director Andrew Hungerford can do when given the reigns to a MainStage production.
- Burnham! A mainstay of Cincinnati theatre and creative genius behind some of Know Theatre’s most Know Theatre’s most memorable shows—including Corpus Christi and Adding Machine: a musical—Michael Burnham knows theatricality, and knows how to keep you enthralled.
- You! As we at Know Theatre like to say:
And with Moby Dick, Know Theatre will challenge your notions of what theatre can do. Come see what we mean, beginning October 10.
