Music and lyrics by Phil Collins
Book by David Henry Hwang
Adapted from Disney's epic animated musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes, Hwang wrote the book for this world renowned musical which was scored by rock legend, Phil Collins. Telling the classic story of a boy washed up on the shores of West Africa, and raised by jungle animals, the musical explores the love story between Jane and Tarzan, and the ways in which his animal upbringing clash with his human instincts.
Tarzan opened on Broadway in 2006, and ran over a year before going on to numerous regional and international productions. The German production has been running since 2008.
