The Beast in the Jungle (Original Score Recording) [CD]
“…a truly masterful and moving score…”
The Beast in the Jungle is the story of John Marcher, a man haunted by personal demons, whose great yet unfulfilled love affair with an unforgettable woman spans decades and continents. With an instrumental score of waltzes by four-time Tony Award winning legend John Kander, book by two-time Tony nominee David Thompson and dazzling choreography that traverses the worlds of ballet and contemporary dance by five-time Tony Award winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman, this powerful and romantic tale of love and loss reunites the remarkable creative team behind The Vineyard Theatre’s acclaimed The Scottsboro Boys.
Produced by Michael Croiter and David Loud, and co-produced by Kumiko Yoshii, Una Jackman and Jay Alix, The Beast in the Jungle captures John Kander’s score, orchestrated by Greg Anthony Rassen and Sam Davis. The award-winning design team includes scenic and costume design by Michael Curry (Frozen), lighting design by Ben Stanton (Fun Home), sound design by Peter Hylenski (Frozen), and music supervision by David Loud (The Scottsboro Boys). The production stage manager is Johnny Milani.
