Post Quick question about Clayton
To anyone who saw this show:
How big is his role in this one? I got the soundtrack and noticed that he doesn't sing anything at all, which kinda surprised me seeing how many songs characters like Gaston and Ursula got in their musical adaptations. Also, how was the fight between Clayton and Tarzan? Is it true that Clayton doesn't even die in this, like he did in the movie?

He is only in the 2nd act
He has no songs. His is a purely acting role
The fight is quite well choreographed but you are correct. He doesn't die. He is clapped in irons and put on the ship...basicly arrested.

Mmkay, thank you so much for the response :) I had been wondering for a while and couldn't find the answer anywhere else on the internet

I mean, was it really necessary to turn the character of Clayton - who, in the Disney's 1999 animated film, was an English gentleman - into a Southern redneck? One that - thanks to lines like "I guess that we're going to have to do this the good old American way: Through brute force" - seemed to be taking none-too-subtle jabs at President Bush

Was this terrible dramatic choice ever discarded during the run or in one of the overseas productions? If not it should be the first change made if David Henry Hwang ever looks at the book again.

Later days
David
