Tarzan, based on the 1999 Disney film of the same name and the story by Edgar Rice Burroughs, has music and lyrics by Grammy winner Phil Collins and a book by David Henry Hwang. "When a young boy is shipwrecked on the shore of Africa, he soon finds himself protected by a tribe of apes," according to production notes. "When his tribe is confronted by humans, including the beautiful and adventurous explorer Jane, Tarzan is forced to consider where his heart really resides."
