July 8, 2007 – The Broadway Musical Tarzan Closes
“…the title of Tarzan within our catalog and within the Disney franchise will do just fine.” – Thomas Schumacher, head of Disney Theatrical Productions
On July 8, 2007, the Broadway version of the animated feature film Tarzan closed after 35 previews and 486 shows at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Having premiered with mixed reviews, the musical failed to find its footing with audiences. Although the Broadway version ended with a loss, Tarzan managed to find its audience within the Netherlands and Germany.
