"Goodman's enchanting Jungle Book delights the ears and eyes"
– DAILY HERALD

June 21 - August 18, 2013 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission

The jungle springs to life in a music-filled spectacle that chronicles young Mowgli’s adventures growing up in the animal kingdom. Based both on Rudyard Kipling’s time-honored children’s tales and the classic Disney film—and with a score featuring the movie’s best-loved songs and original Indian-inspired music and dance—this spellbinding world premiere is the theatrical event of the season. 

Produced in Association with Huntington Theatre Company
