    Event Description:

    Disney's TARZAN®

    Book by David Henry Hwang

    Music and Lyrics by Phil Collins

    Based on the story, Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and the Disney film, Tarzan


    Directed by Patrick Klein

    Choreographed by Claire Alexander

    Music Direction by Nick Kenrick


    Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him Tarzan. Apart from striving for acceptance from his ape father, Tarzan's life is mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his tribe's territory and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan struggles to navigate a jungle thick with emotion as he discovers his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts. Based on Disney's unforgettable animated musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes, TARZAN® features heart-pumping music by rock legend Phil Collins and a book by TONY Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang. Swinging excitement and hits like the Academy Award winning "You'll Be In My Heart" as well as "Son of Man" and "Two Worlds" make TARZAN® an unforgettable experience for all ages.
