TARZAN® is based on the Disney film and features all of the popular Phil Collins songs from it, as well as many new ones written by Collins for the stage version. Adapted from the 1914 story “Tarzan of the Apes” by Edgar Rice Burroughs, this Moonlight Broadway production is a classic-with-a-twist.

Never quite fitting in with the tribe, Tarzan is very intrigued by the similarities he discovers between himself and a young naturalist (Jane) he rescues in the jungle. Soon, Tarzan’s loyalties to his gorilla family and the attraction he feels for Jane are tested as he realizes he must choose between the life he has known and a future with Jane.

January 7….David Bondt: Artist Talk: Into the Mystic – “In my current series of works my focus is on exploring themes of what is sacred, giving room for a variety of perspectives. I view this as including a sense of connection to something bigger than myself; this can apply to having simply a deep sense of aliveness and interconnectedness. My hope is that as you witness these small glimpses "into the mystic" that you too may embrace the possibility of being intricately connected to the infinite."
