“The appearance of Kevin Carolan as the fun-loving bear Baloo …With his ebullient manner and honey-laden voice on “Bear Necessities,” …kicks the show almost instantly to life.”

Entertainment Weekly

“Belushi-esqe lovability”

– Showbiz Chicago

“The heart and soul of the production… [Carolan] is still lovably goofy, but there’s also a bluesman living deep in his performance that lends the big bear a new depth.”

– Chicagoist


– Chicago Theatre Addict

“A scene-stealing Carolan sings and jokes with booming voice perfection.”

– The Fourth Walsh


– Chicago Critic
