About the Show

​From five-time Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman, legendary composer John Kander, and Tony Award-nominated playwright David Thompson comes a stunningly original new work — fusing dance​, drama​ and music. ​ ​Adapted from Henry James’ classic 1903 novella, THE BEAST IN THE JUNGLE is a journey into the ​haunted ​psyche of John Marcher,​ ​​and a​ great​ unfulfilled love affair ​which spans decades and continents. With a ​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 reunites the remarkable creative team behind The Vineyard’s acclaimed THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS, and features former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Irina Dvorovenko (“The Americans”).
