Disney is bringing two Broadway veterans back for the Epcot International Festival for the Arts Broadway Concert Series. Josh Strickland and Kevin Massey, who originated (and understudied) the role of Tarzan on Broadway, will perform along with other notable Broadway names.
Tarzan, The Broadway Musical, debut on Broadway in 2006. Phil Collins wrote all the music and lyrics for the show and the film. The show closed in 2007, after nearly 500 performances, and went on to debut on-stage around the world. Most notably, Josh reprised his role as Tarzan in the German production, singing the score in German this time!
Kevin will begin the Broadway series, performing with Kerry Butler (Beauty and the Beast, Mean Girls), January 18, 19, 22, 23, and 26th. Josh performs with Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast), February 11, 12, 15, 16, 19, 20, and 23rd.
Both Kevin and Josh sat down to chat with D23 about their days on the Great White Way. They both agree that the best part of performing as Tarzan was “flying” from tree to tree on stage. As difficult as the movements of Tarzan were for both of them at first, they were surprised how natural it felt after they began performances.
The Epcot International Festival of the Arts starts January 18th and continues through February 25th. Talents from all over the world will be on hand showcasing their visual, culinary and performing arts.
