Our #JUNGLEREADS initiative will let you immerse yourself in the world of our plays with recommended titles that explore the themes reflected on our stage. Whether it's comedy, drama, or a bit of both, you'll be able to continue your exploration with reading suggestions put together by our artistic team and our friends at Magers & Quinn.
Use #junglereads to let us know what you’re reading!

Buy a book – or books! – from our curated list, then bring your receipt to the Jungle when you see a show, and you’ll receive a complimentary beverage from concessions!
