The new Disney musical Tarzan will be featured on the May 15 broadcast of "Good Morning America."

Josh Strickland and Jenn Gambatese, who portray, respectively, Tarzan and Jane in the recently opened musical, will be interviewed and will perform Phil Collins' Tarzan tune "For the First Time." "Good Morning America" airs in the metropolitan area on ABC-TV, Channel 7. The Tarzan feature is scheduled to air during the 8-9 AM ET hour. Tarzan features a score by Phil Collins. Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang has written the musical's book based on both the Disney film and the original Edgar Rice Burroughs story "Tarzan of the Apes." The creative team also includes Meryl Tankard (choreography), Pichón Baldinu (aerial design), Natasha Katz (lighting design), John Shivers (sound design), Paul Bogaev (music producer/vocal arrangements) and Doug Besterman (orchestrations).

Tarzan, according to press notes, begins as "a shipwreck leaves an infant orphaned on the West African shore. The helpless baby is taken under the protection of a gorilla tribe and becomes part of their family. When he eventually encounters his first human — Jane Porter, a curious young explorer — both their worlds are transformed forever."
