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 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.

Showcasing an easygoing manner and a 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.

The Whiting

It would be hard to think of The Whiting as anything less than opulent. Before audiences grab one of the theater's 2,043 seats, they pass through a lobby where a golden sphere hangs suspended. That sphere, completed a year after the theater's founding in 1967, is made up of 675 gold-plated steel branches, stretching 7 feet in diameter, and is valued at $5 million. It's a fitting tribute to the venue's namesake: James H. Whiting, an early pioneer of the auto industry. Although its gold dulled over time—along with the rest of the theater—a renovation in 1999 helped it sparkle once again and continue drawing passersby into its gravitation field.
