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).  An audio stream from the cast album can be heard at this link.
