Based on the stories by Rudyard Kipling. Book and lyrics by Marcus Weber. Music by Michael Summ. King Street Theatre Newtown. April 16 – 26, 2014.
Sometimes a production is so unexpectedly good that you almost fall out of your seat in surprise. Where did this beautiful adaptation of The Jungle Book come from? Full of great tunes, superb characterisation and laughs, surely it could not have been its first outing?
Ah there it was in the fine print. This adaptation has had 5000 performances through-out Europe. The royalties are still flowing back to the writer Marcus Weber to help him run his venue The King Street Theatre in Newtown.
