I know I'm not the only one who has fond memories of an adolescence filled with a variety of televised zoologists, who functioned as animal ambassadors to the general public. Through their infectious enthusiasm and unabashedly enthusiastic personalities, they educated untold numbers of children about animal habitats, adaptations, and human-made existential threats. This weekend animal lovers of all ages have the chance to see a live presentation by Jungle Jack Hanna, along with a number of furry and feathered friends, at the stage show "Jack Hanna's Into the Wild Live!" hosted at Kodak Center. Hanna will tell anecdotes and share footage from his global adventures, and bring out a number of animal guests for live demonstrations.
Saturday, March 14, at 7 p.m. Kodak Center, 200 West Ridge Road. $20-$45. 254-0181; kodakcenter.com.
UPDATE: This event has been postponed. Message from the organizers: "We encourage you to please be patient and hold on to your tickets, as tickets already purchased will be honored for the rescheduled event. Kodak Center will send out further instructions once a new date has been confirmed."
