Photo Coverage: DISNEY'S TARZAN by Viva Atlantis TheatricalsManila, Philippines, June 19, 2013--Viva Atlantis Theatrical's staging of "Disney's Tarzan" stars multi-awarded singer Rachelle Ann Go (Jane Porter) and Broadway actor Dan Domenech (Tarzan).

The Domenech-Go tandem is a perfect match for their roles, Tarzan and Jane. Domenech delivers an impressive performance. What makes him remarkable as Tarzan is his sustained energy all throughout the show, despite all the tiring swinging on ropes and ape-like walking. He makes his singing while swinging look so easy. Go, on the other hand, nails her portrayal of Jane. She belts her songs effortlessly and speaks with British accent with ease. She complements Domenech onstage--showing their undeniable stage chemistry.

Alongside Go and Domenech, "Tarzan" features other stellar cast members: Ima Castro, who plays Tarzan's ape mother, Kala, sings a very heartwarming and moving duet, "You'll Be In My Heart," (written by Phil Collins) with Tarzan; Millado, with his commanding voice, shows that he is indeed Kerchak, the ape leader; and Hidalgo displays such enthusiasm playing Terk, Tarzan's ape best friend.

Aside from the outstanding main actors, the show's set design (by Lex Marcos) is noteworthy; it captures the audience's imagination bringing out the vivid colors of a real-life jungle.

Chari Arespacochaga, the show's director, brings in all the needed elements to one splendid musical theater production.

Its cast members, songs, set pieces, and movements successfully convey the core story behind "Tarzan": the love of family.

Disney's "Tarzan" runs at Meralco Theater until Saturday, June 29. For tickets, visit ticketworld.com.ph.
