Title: Spiderman on broadway
Post by: kickgirl91 on November 19, 2010, 09:15:07 PM
How do you guys feel about this?

Here's the description from the Broadway website

Drawing from over 40 years of Marvel comic books for inspiration, Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark spins a new take on the mythic tale of a young man propelled from a modest rowhouse in Queens to the sky-scraping spire of the Chrysler Building, the bustling offices of the Daily Bugle, through the dizzying canyons of Manhattan, to new vistas never before seen. The musical follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down—literally—when he’s bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek—suddenly endowed with astonishing powers—soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains test not only his physical strength but also his strength of character.

I'm fine with it, just so long as it doesn't end with a brand new day.

it has some promise...most expensive broadway production even, music by Bono and edge (U2).  I hope they can pull it off without being overly cheezy.

Yes! Bono and edge are musical geniuses. So that alone might save it
