‘Tarzan’ works it out

The “Tarzan” that opened Wednesday was different from the show that began the unusually long Broadway preview process the musical underwent.

“That’s what you do in previews, besides lose your hair,” said designer-helmer Bob Crowley, whose purple tie complemented the dominant green of his set for the Disney mega-tuner.

Doing a work-intensive preview process in Manhattan was, according to Rialto tyro Phil Collins, “like washing your underwear in public.”

But he enjoyed providing the score for “Tarzan” so much that he anticipates returning to Broadway someday. “I’d love to do more, and I’ve made a few new friends since I’ve been here,” he said.

As for Tony recognition this year, Collins isn’t counting on it. “This is a new world to me. I don’t expect to be embraced straight away,” he said. “Sometimes you’ve got to earn your stripes.”
