Before Dave Malloy's new musical Moby-Dick makes its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University in December, the American Museum of Natural History will present staged excerpts from the production.

On July 26 and 27, the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life will be transformed into a musical theatre stage, with a cast of 11 and a seven-piece orchestra previewing selections from Malloy’s adaptation under the 94-foot-long blue whale model.

The performance will be 90 minutes without intermission, followed by a Q&A session with members of the cast and creative team.

A.R.T.’s production of Moby-Dick, based on Herman Melville's 1851 novel, will begin December 3 at the Loeb Drama Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Tony nominee Rachel Chavkin directs.
