The world premiere production of Moby-Dick, a new musical by composer Dave Malloy, began performances December 3 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Hadestown Tony winner Rachel Chavkin directs the staging, reuniting with Malloy following their collaboration on Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 (which also played the A.R.T., prior to its Broadway bow).

The Great Comet alum Manik Choksi stars as narrator Ishmael, with Tom Nelis (Indecent) as Ahab, Starr Busby (Malloy's Octet) as Starbuck, Kalyn West (The Prom) as Stubb, Anna Ishida (Beowulf) as Flask, Andrew Cristi (A Christmas Story) as Queequeg, Matt Kizer (The River Bridge) as Tashtego, J.D. Mollison (Octet) as Daggoo, Eric Berryman (The B-Side: Negro Folklore From Texas State Prisons) as Fedallah, and Morgan Siobhan Green (Be More Chill) as Pip.

Also joining in various roles are Ashkon Davaran (The Great Comet), Kim Blanck (Octet), and Dawn L. Troupe (Brothers ParaNormal).
