Photo Coverage: Tarzan Cast at Barnes & Noble

​

In celebration of Tarzan's first anniversary on Thursday, May 10th, Tarzan composer Phil Collins, author Michael Lassell and Tarzan stars Josh Strickland, Jenn Gambatese and Chester Gregory appeared at Barnes & Noble (Broadway and 66th Street) for a special event.

Lassell read from his recently released Tarzan: The Broadway Adventure and the cast performed four popular songs from the show, composed by Collins. They also signed copies of Tarzan: The Broadway Adventure, and the original Broadway cast album, also available at the store.

"Tarzan has been dazzling Broadway audiences since Spring 2006 with it's unique blend of spectacle, design and story-telling. Based on the famous character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the story of Tarzan has been depicted in a series of 24 novels, more than 75 feature films and several television series over the last 90 years. It was reinvented once again by seven-time Grammy Award winner Phil Collins for Disney's animated film, which gained instant international success, grossing $447 million worldwide. To bring Tarzan to the Broadway stage, Collins expanded his score from the movie and teamed up with three-time Tony Award winning director/designer Bob Crowley," according to press notes.

The production stars Strickland as Tarzan, Gambatese as Jane, Merle Dandridge as Kala, Robert Evan as Kerchak, Gregory as Terk, Timothy Jerome as Professor Porter and Donnie Keshawarz as Clayton.  Alex Rutherford and Dylan Riley Snyder alternate in the role of Young Tarzan. Tony Award-winner David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly) wrote the book, based on Tarzan of the Apes, by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and the Disney film, Tarzan.
