But Captain Ahab, Ishmael, and the whale have also held legions of performers in their thrall. The latest among them is Chicago's Blair Thomas. The co-founder of Redmoon Theater has been obsessed with the big one that got away for decades, exploring Moby Dick in multiple ways, from large-scale puppetry to intimate one-person shows. Join the principal of Blair Thomas & Company as he takes us on his personal quest for the ultimate interpretation of Herman Melville's classic.
