In additon to a new Broadway-style musical about Mary Poppins in the works for Disney Theatricals is an unconventional staging of Tarzan.
It will feature songs by Grammy winner Phil Collins, just as the 1999 animated Disney feature did. Bob Crowley is the designer of the production and is responsible for its conception in bringing it to Broadway. He's the Tony award-winning costume/set designer who worked on Disney's Aida and also Carousel.
Tarzan will be performed in "a non-traditional venue because there will be things happening in the air and on the ground, so you won't be able to stage it in a regular Broadway house," according to a spokesman for the show. Choreographer Meryl Tankard is also on the project's team.
Another workshop of the upcoming Disney musical Tarzan will be held in January 2004.
