Tarzan: Disney's newest family sensation soars onto Broadway in Spring 2006!

A shipwreck leaves an infant orphaned on the West African shore. The helpless baby is taken under the protection of a gorilla tribe and becomes part of their family. When he eventually encounters his first human--Jane Porter, a curious young explorer--both their worlds are transformed forever.

Based on the award-winning animated film, Disney announces its first new Broadway musical in five years, and the remarkable team of artists assembled to tell this story. Six-time Grammy® Award winner Phil Collins has expanded his original songs-including the Oscar® and Grammy® Award winning "You'll Be in My Heart" and "Two Worlds"--creating a complete theater score. Two-time Tony® winner Bob Crowley directs and designs the show, and Tony® winner David Henry Hwang has adapted the story for the stage. The Broadway debuts of acclaimed Australian choreographer Meryl Tankard and aerial designer Pichon Baldinu, creator of De La Guarda, will help bring the world of Tarzan® to life.

Tarzan soars onto Broadway on March 17, 2006.
