Mary Zimmerman's new adaptation of the 1967 Walt Disney film, itself based on Rudyard Kipling's stories of a "man-cub" growing up in the Indian jungle, has opened at the Goodman Theatre (with interest and support from Disney Theatricals). The music is both familiar and fascinating, the visuals as lush as you'd expect, but there are problems yet to solve. Read my full three-star review.
