Behind the Scenes of The Jungle Book Workshop

In February 2013, The Jungle Book Director/Adapter Mary Zimmerman and Music Director Doug Peck held a music workshop which united six Chicago swing/jazz musicians with six Indian instrumentalists to fuse songs to create a sound unique to this production. The legendary Academy Award winner Richard Sherman is collaborating on this production, providing access and permission to adapt beloved songs that Sherman and his brother, Robert, wrote for the film—as well as unused songs written for the film, plus new lyrics written for this production.
