Photo Coverage: Opening Night at Tarzan
Two-time Tony Award-winner Bob Crowley (Aida, Carousel), directs the show; he also designed its scenery and costumes. Oscar- and seven-time Grammy Award-winner Phil Collins has written the music and lyrics, expanding his songs for Disney's film into a complete theatre score. Tony Award-winner David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly) has written the book, based on the novel, Tarzan of the Apes, by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and the Disney film Tarzan.
Choreography is by Meryl Tankard, with aerial design by Pichón Baldinu (De La Guarda). Lighting design is by Tony Award-winner Natasha Katz (Aida) and sound design is by John Shivers. Other members of the creative team include Paul Bogaev (music producer/vocal arrangements) and Doug Besterman (orchestrations).
A cast recording of the show will be released on June 27th (and is available for pre-order on the show's website). Visit www.tarzanonbroadway.com for tickets and more information. Photos by Walter McBride / Retna Ltd.
