The Jungle Book transports audiences to mystical India and the tale of the young “man-cub,” Mowgli, a boy raised by animals who inhabits this mysterious jungle. Befriended by some animals and pursued by others, Mowgli is eventually forced to choose between the animal kingdom and the more “civilized” human world. Presented as a play-within-a-play, The Jungle Book uses masks, dance, mime to create this amazing and wonderful adventure.
“Good theater is good theater, as this fine adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s Mowgli stories proves.” – Los Angeles Times
