This picture alone makes me want to see the musical. And it's family-friendly! And with music from Phil Collins! Here's what they say:
"Based on Disney's animated film, this unforgettable family musical is now brought to life on stage. Created by the combined talents of pop legend Phil Collins, acclaimed playwright David Henry Hwang and iconic novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs -- along with some good old Disney magic -- this is a Tarzan you won't want to miss. Featuring all of the songs from the movie (including the award-winning "You'll Be in My Heart") plus new ones created just for the musical by Collins, this will be the first full-scale production of Tarzan in the Bay Area and will use special effects to allow the characters to fly across the stage as Tarzan swings through the trees of the jungle. Truly an iconic character, Tarzan has been entertaining readers and audiences for more than 100 years. It's the amazing story of an orphaned boy who strives for acceptance by the tribe of apes who raise him. When a human expedition enters their jungle territory, Tarzan -- now a man -- encounters strangers like himself for the first time. This stage musical delivers a fresh adventure for all ages, and promises new memories of the legendary jungle hero."
