Jack Hanna’s “Into the Wild Live!”
With his trademark khaki safari outfit, inviting Tennessee twang, and enormous collection of furry, feathered, and reptilian friends, Jungle Jack Hanna is a household name for most animal lovers. 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 the Emmy-winning Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown, Jack brings his adventure program, Into the Wild, onto the stage for an awe-inspiring and educational safari for all ages.
Showcasing an easygoing manner and a diehard passion for his craft, Jack escorts enchanted audiences through a multimedia, multispecies travelogue of his wildlife escapades, which have taken him from Rwanda’s rainforests to Australia’s savannas. The gifted raconteur pairs vivid anecdotes with never-before-seen footage of his encounters with nature’s most adorable and dangerous critters, and in doing so, raises awareness of 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 past appearances have included a bald eagle, a python, a sloth, and a snickering Australian kookaburra bird.
The Palace Theatre
The Palace Theatre was hailed as "Connecticut's Most Magnificent" when it opened in 1927. Its grandeur was designed by architect Thomas Lamb of Madison Square Garden fame, who outfitted the vaudeville palace with a gilded proscenium and sweeping, pearl-shaded balconies. Today, audiences flock to the historic theater for performances from the Stamford Symphony, the Ballet School of Stamford, comedians, and musical acts.
