COMMENTS:

This play was so much fun. It was based on the story of The Jungle Book, but it was a musical done in a gibberish language. It was so interesting to watch a show that no one in the audience could understand verbally, but that was still understood visually. Further, it is such a challenge for an actor to rely on physicalization, only, to portray a story. This play was great for both adults and children, it's quite the family affair.


POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

I can see this show having a run on Off-Off Broadway. It is fun and enjoyable with a lot of challenges for the actor. Further, the play has a wide audience range which is always a good thing.
