Great show from NYC! A whaling story in Nantucket-where else? The musicians/actors were all very talented. I love the part where they all sway as if actually on the ship. Music is lively. White Heron Theatre is a wonderful new facility.

We saw The Underpants at this wonderful theatre. This Equity production was hilarious and the acting company was top rate. The White Heron recently opened its new building. It's lovely.
