Post The man in Tarzan...
I just saw this on Friday, and I'm not sure why Josh didn't go further on American Idol because he was awesome in this show. I mentioned in another post that he was on the whole night and it seemed as if Phil Collins wrote the songs for Josh's voice! When the CD comes out, BUY IT, you will fall in love with the songs and Josh's voice... :D Oh, and the show is still in the works, but what I saw was pretty frickin' great. This whole cast was phenomenial and the set, though different, was great and worked great for the show. The first scene is something you just have to experience, it had the audience applauding thunderously within five minutes of the show! GO SEE IT!!!

Are there more songs than just the movie songs? How are they sung?

No. No. No. Are they sung by the actors or by a man off stage like the movie, nobody sang in the movie besides a couple of characters.

Josh Strickland got cut in the first round of Hollywood in the second season in the top 150. He was also on an episode of Star Search, but he lost to Nadia Turner. Ironically, he sang a Phil Collins song.

Most are sung onstage, but a lot of the time there is some random voice singing ( like for the song "Two Worlds" ) and some stupid backup choir in almost everything.

Shuler also played Javert in Les Miserables on B'way for awhile. I had the opportunity to see him in the role once, and he was very good IMO.

I could be wrong but I think most of the off stage singing was done by Josh Strickland or Chester Gregory II (Tarzan and Terk). I know it was definately done by at least Josh. There were only like two times that that happened I think. It's been a while so I don't really remember.

Josh Strickland was absolutely amazing in this - if you get the chance to see it, GO, if only for his voice. The show itself wasn't nessasarily jaw-dropping or breath-taking as a whole, but the opening sequence is a must see - it's the coolest thing I've seen done with technical theatre before. Kaya, also, is really really good. She's wonderful.

Ohh, and if you get a chance to go to the side-stage door, then do it, because the actors are SO friendly. And gorgeous! Josh....wow. Yeah, he's got it going on, just to let you know...haha. :D

haha I agree with you there. The stage door was quite fun. Everyone was willing to take a picture with you and didn't forget about you like a few other people do. And it is a good looking cast :wink:

I think that's right, although I'm trying to revall offhand and may be mistaken: "Two Worlds" was led vocally by Tarzan on Broadway, although it seems that this was changed for the European productions, where it has been reported that the song was sung by Terk and "Son of Man" was sung by Terk.

Later days
