Jungle Book

Asolo Rep is thrilled to present this world premiere from the creators of the hit show Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea from our 2016-17 season. Using the same jaw-dropping multimedia theatrical approach, Jungle Book re-imagines Kipling’s classic stories through modern eyes to transport audiences to the jungles of India. From Mowgli the Man-Cub to Baloo the Bear, Kaa the Snake and more, Jungle Book brings the characters audiences know and love to life while also introducing some of the other colorful inhabitants of Kipling’s books. Through eye-popping video, interactive technology and the whimsical and the soulful stories and songs from the original book, this time honored tale promises to be a feast for the senses.
