Searching for Beefcake in "The Jungle Book Musical"
And Mowgli is no Tarzan: he's a scrawny ten-year old boy.
But he's not always played by a scrawny ten-year old boy..
Here the grown-up and buffed Tom Boss plays Mowgli at the community theater in the gay resort town of Orono, Maine.
At the King Street Theater in Sidney, Australia, a hunkoid with the amazing name Badaidilaga Maftuh-flynn plays the jungle waif.
This production is at the Oak Grove Theater in Edinburgh. I don't know who this Mowgli is. I think that's Bagheera behind him.
Another unknown Mowgli from a production in Amsterdam. At least he looks South Asian.
Buffed monkeys from the production at the Goodman Theater in Chicago.
At the famous Metta Theater in Britain, Mowgli becomes a girl, and the jungle is re-envisioned as a hip-hop urban wasteland. Bagheera is a graffiti artist, Baloo a beat-box bohemian, and Shere Khan (Dean Stewart) a crime boss who struts his stuff shirtless.
