The Beast in the Jungle

$45-$120

Adapted from Henry James' classic 1903 novella, THE BEAST IN THE JUNGLE is a journey into the psyche of John Marcher, a man haunted by personal demons, whose great yet unfulfilled love affair with an unforgettable woman spans decades and continents.

With a swirling, waltz-inspired instrumental score, and dazzling choreography that traverses the worlds of ballet and contemporary dance, this powerful and romantic tale of love and loss will reunite the renowned creative team behind The Vineyard's acclaimed production of THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS.
