“…But this ever-surprising, winningly whimsical show reinvents the tale of a child raised by animals (and reluctantly sent home to join his own species) in ways that live musical theater can do. Entirely fresh and playful, the show captures the spirit of Indian culture in authentic yet always accessible ways. It zestily grabs hold of the beat of a British military march. And it flies fearlessly into Lindy Hop mode, with a bit of scatting here, and the pulse of an Indian raga there. On top of all this, there are the winkingly anthropomorphic moves of the jungle creatures courtesy of choreographer Christopher Gattelli, whose wild and crazy and sometimes poetic mashup includes both tap dance and eye-popping bits of traditional bharata natyam Indian classical dance (by way of Hema Rajagopalan).”
