I was rather surprised to be in Times Sq a few days ago (Wednesday 7/25) and see that the theather that I thought was still housing the Tarzan show was dark. I don't recall any mention (especially here on MC) about the show getting axed. But sure enough the sign on the door had directions on how obtain a refund for shows already purchased. Tarzan never really seemed like a good fit for Broadways to begin with.
After a quick conversation with a gentleman working across the street at the Beauty and Beast theather, he told me the announcement was made and production stopped with two weeks notice. I was very surprised having seen Tarzan last year I thought it needed some work but didn't think it would be cancelled like that. I figured they would have stopped selling any future dates and honored those already purchased. I guess the show was really tanking big time.
I thought since the theater was available now, that maybe Beauty and the Beast could occupy the Richard Rogers now instead of just closing. But apparently the theather is too small and The Little Mermaid was designed for the Lunt-Fontanne also and couldn't be moved either.
