Tarzan Trouble

The economy wasn’t to blame for shuttering the American Musical Theatre of San Jose in California, which filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection Dec. 1.

According to tax statements, the loss of a projected $2 million in revenue came from hosting Disney’s “Tarzan,” which AMT produced with co-producer Atlanta’s Theatre of the Stars.

The producer used the funds AMT gave it for expenses other than “Tarzan,” AMT CEO Michael Miller told the Mercury News.

A lawsuit against Theatre of the Stars is reportedly in the works.
