Tarzan Swings onto Broadway
Disney's newest musical Tarzan opens tonight on Broadway. Based on the film, with songs written by Phil Collins, the new musical is claiming to be unlike anything ever seen. How are they going to do the gorillas and other animals without looking like the Lion King? Producers have said they have done it, and done it well. Collins wrote nine new songs for the production which is directed and designed by Bob Crowley (the genius who designed the amazing sets and costumes for Aida). From what I've read, most of the show takes place in the air. Can't wait to see it or hear the new cast album. Check out the official Tarzan the musical web site. Also, here is an interesting interview with Phil Collins from Broadway.com about the show and how it was conceived and then put into production.
