For those near New York harbor, the Brave New World Repertory Theatre is presenting MOBY DICK–REHEARSED by Orson Welles, co-directed by John Morgan and Alexander Harrington at Red Hook’s Waterfront Museum & Showboat Barge on May 3-5 & 10-12 at 7:30.

Sadly, Moby-Dick, or, The Whale, arguably Melville’s masterpiece, only sold around 3,700 copies during the author’s lifetime and earned him only around $1,300. Fortunately, Moby Dick, or the Card Game, a new “dynamic and action-packed card game for 2-4 players, lovingly adapted from Herman Melville’s classic novel,” is doing considerably better. The card game developers are raising money on Kickstarter to finish the project. With 26 days to go in the fundraiser, they have exceeded their $25,000 target, raising $43,988, so far, from 1,171 backers.
