Mozart in the Jungle made me laugh, although I have no idea whether it will make musicians or insiders with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra crack a smile. I hope they will let me know.

An interesting, colorful look at a world I don't know well, filled with fun performances, and you can watch the show improve right along with the orchestra itself.
