Tarzan stage production

Tarzan Stage Production Officially Opens on Broadway with Josh Strickland as Tarzan

On this day in 2006, Tarzan swung onto Broadway stages with Josh Strickland in the title role of the ape man and Jenn Gambatese as his loyal mate Jane. The lavish production at the Richard Rodgers Theatre featured a score by Phil Collins and was complete with lush, fanciful scenic, and costume design, intricate uses of animation and projected images, and acrobatic dancers and aerialists. The Broadway version of the show took its final bow on July 8, 2007 after 486 performances and 35 previews.
