  • Energetic and energizing! It was almost as much fun to watch the audience near me for a Thursday matinee as to watch the show itself -- many older people, a little skeptical at first, but entering right into the delight of the music, dancing, etc. I read through the comments above, and thought there was not enough note of the chorus with their right-on dancing, gymnastics, singing, acting, etc. Their reward, of course, was that they had several costumes, while the leads toiled along, for the most part, in whatever they were wearing at first. A nice switch! I think the best thing to do while seeing it and while thinking about it later is to forget that it is based on Kipling, and enjoy it for what it is -- a musical for almost all ages! Kudos to all!
