Salty Brine to Bring WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE to Pangea
Salty Brine has announced the premiere of a new cabaret, Welcome to the Jungle, as the latest installment in his series, The Living Record Collection. Welcome to the Jungle, inspired by Harry Nilsson's hit album Nilsson Schmilsson and Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, will perform on May 10, 17, 24, 31 and June 7 at Pangea. Doors open at 6:30pm and shows begin at 7:30pm. Advance tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at www.thesaltiestbrine.com.
Every summer, deep in the woods of New Hampshire, campers gather around a towering bonfire; They howl like wild dogs, stamp their feet upon the dirt, and recite the Law of the Jungle. Salty Brine continues his Living Record Collection with Harry Nilsson's hit album, Nilsson Schmilsson, woven through the stories of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book like you've never heard them before. "Oh hear the call!- Good hunting all- that keep the Jungle Law!"
Welcome to the Jungle, created and performed by Salty Brine, is directed by Max Reuben with arrangements by Nate Weida and costume design by Heather McDevitt Barton.
This dazzling expedition into the heart of popular music, created and performed by cabaret artist Salty Brine, takes incredible albums and twists them in style and form until they are at once familiar and foreign, nostalgic and new. Imagining track lists as blueprints for evenings of musical mayhem, Salty brings you The Living Record Collection.
Past shows (all Time Out New York Critics' Picks) include Abbey Straße, I've Been to Sea Before, Second Hand News, Dark Side of the Rainbow, I Carried a Watermelon, He's So Unusual, Givin' Up Your Heart, I'm A Lot Like You, These Are the Contents of My Head, Thank U 4 a Funky Time, This One Night at the Opera, How Strange It Is, Good News, or Harry the Dog and Dean.
