Tarzan is the latest Disney property that's being given the stage musical treatment. Genesis' Phil Collins, who provided some of the songs for the 1999 animated film about the boy raised by apes, is involved in the adaptation which is apparently headed for Broadway prior to the West End. Like with Julie Taymor's highly lauded version of The Lion King, the plan is to come up with a - or rather another - new concept for realising the animals on stage. Other Disney projects in the works, each with their own set design challenges, are Aladdin and The Little Mermaid, the latter being spearheaded by Olivier Award-winning British choreographer and former artistic director of Adventures in Motion Pictures Matthew Bourne. In the meantime, Bourne will be presenting his fresh reworking of Nutcracker! at Sadler's Wells this Christmas ahead of a UK tour.
