For most animal lovers, “Jungle Jack” Hanna is a household name with his trademark khaki safari outfit, inviting Tennessee twang, and enormous collection of furry, feathered, and reptilian friends. The famed director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has kept audiences enamored and talk-show hosts bewildered since 1981. Taking a reprieve from hosting Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown, letting snakes loose on Good Morning America, and pestering David Letterman with lemurs, Jack brings his adventure program, Into the Wild, onto the stage for an awe-inspiring and educational safari for all ages.
With his easygoing manner and diehard passion for his craft, Jack escorts enchanted audiences through a multimedia, multispecies travelogue of his wildlife escapades. A gifted raconteur, Jack paints pictures with words as he shows video clips of his encounters with nature’s most adorable and dangerous critters, promoting his efforts to protect the world’s endangered species. The highlight of every one of Jack’s appearances is always the amazing creatures he brings to the stage, and this show promises an ark of awe, gasps, and creepy-crawlies. The roster of animals at Jack’s program is subject to change, but recent appearances have included a bald eagle, a python, a sloth, and a snickering Australian kookaburra bird. Audiences at this year’s tour have also encountered a hovering owl searching for leftover moles and a glimpse down the throat of a 10-foot alligator.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
