"These four jungle beasts turned captive characters are given an urban makeover, compliments of Costume Designer Jackie Rebok. Rather than investing in full-on animal costumes, Rebok takes a New York City fashionista approach and alludes to their animal expressions in the sartorial selections of the show. This [is] a subtle and fun way to engage the audiences’ imaginations throughout the performance, and is particularly useful when it comes to both the Lemurs and the Penguins, with massive goggle-glasses and orange beak-baseball caps, respectively. Fitting into the wildness of the jungle and the urban nature of New York City’s Central Park Zoo, these costume choices match Helen Garcia-Alton’s lighting design as well as giving a vibrant life to each of the characters."

"Costume Designer Jackie Rebok works wonders on a tight budget, mostly giving the animals an imaginative “kind of see it” impression of their species. Penguins wear orange-billed caps and tuxedos, for instance, and King Julien rocks it in a legless jumpsuit and yellow spectacles and cape."
