Although Tarzan hasn’t brought in the sustainable numbers that’s required to keep a big production open on Broadway, a slightly updated version is making waves over seas. Right now its playing in the Netherlands and Germany could be next:
Tarzan there not only opened to impressive advance ticket sales (the
trick here not only being the Disney brand and Phil Collins as composer
but also the fact that the lead of Tarzan was casted in a tv-show) but
also glowing reviews. Why? The creative team from the Broadway was able
to correct many mistakes made in the original version of the show that
were only discovered too late in New York, due to the lack of a decent
out-of-town-try-outs. The result (according to reviewers who have seen
both versions) is a much more engaging, substantial show.
