Product Description


You'll go ape for this behind-the-vines backstage pass to Disney's new Broadway musical "Tarzan". On May 10th, 2006, Disney Theatrical Productions opened "Tarzan" on Broadway. The company that introduced a dread-locked Tarzan who slipped through the jungle canopy with the extreme-sports moves of skateboarding or snowboarding, reinvents the tale once again, this time for the stage. The new spectacular features music from the film plus five new Phil Collins songs, direction and set design by Tony Award-winning Bob Crowley, and choreography by renowned Australian dancer and choreographer Meryl Tanker. Also on the team is Pichon Baldinu, the Argentine stage visionary who created the famous De La Guarda Company. In his particular brand of theatrical invention, actors are suspended from the ceiling, singly and en masse. "Tarzan - The Making of a Braodway Spectacular" is a beautifully illustrated journey behind the scenes - allowing insights into the creation of this most unique Broadway production.

HASH(0x8abbba50) out of 5 stars Great book, great show! 18 Jan. 2008
By T. P. H. Houben - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book has a different cover than displayed by, it has a picture of the mature Tarzan with his father's hat on his head.

I think the book is VERY nice, it has a lot of pictures, promotional shots, but also concept art, production pictures and it shows an abandoned show concept.

The show is very good, I'm happy it still plays in Europe (The Netherlands and by oct. 2008 Germany) as I really liked it!

For everyone who liked this show or is a Disneyfan, this book is a must-buy!

HASH(0x8abbbaa4) out of 5 stars Nice book. 1 Oct. 2007
By dmanwi - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A very nice book. It is a very wide ranging overview regarding the creation of the musical. The books value was in its photographs. The actual text was fairly superficial. As a fan I would have enjoyed more details regarding the performers, more stories and quotes from the various creative principals.

Good behind the scenes look on the making of the Broadway production. Sadly I missed seeing this musical, even if I could have afforded a ticket. I wish they had given more pictures of the actual play and not the step-by-step process of creating it. Still, recommended.

As our high school prepares to perform Tarzan: The Musical, this book has been a great reference tool. I'm thrilled that it was delivered sooner than anticipated and in great condition. Thank you for the positive experience.
