The Hamburg production of TARZAN® is an immersive version of the musical, with audience members surrounded by scenic elements and performers acrobatically swinging through the air. Guided by much of the creative team that developed the original Broadway production, this new interpretation of the show is an incredible success in Holland, where TARZAN® is playing at the Circustheatre near Amsterdam and has already been seen by a million people.
“Along with our partners at Stage Entertainment, it’s been a thrill to work closely with Phil Collins, Bob Crowley, Sergio Trujillo and Natasha Katz in the evolution of TARZAN® from its inception in New York to this electrifying new incarnation in Germany.” said Thomas Schumacher, producer and President of Disney Theatrical Productions. “We’re so proud that TARZAN® continues to astound with this heart-stopping version of the show where audiences feel like part of the action.”
TARZAN® is based on the story Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs and the Disney animated film and features music and lyrics by Phil Collins. The original cast recording of the Broadway production of TARZAN® was released by Walt Disney Records and is available in music stores nationwide and at online retailers including Amazon, iTunes and Disney Shopping. TARZAN® made its world premiere on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in May, 2006.
