Spider-Man hits Broadway

The mainstream crossover of comics continues! Not content with being one of the most successful film trilogies of all time, Marvel has decided to take the Spider-Man show on stage with "Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark." The show will draw upon 40 years of Marvel Comics and follows the story of Peter Parker who goes through some "changes" when bitten by a spider. The show will feature the regular assortment of villains for Spidey to face, and attendees are in store for a final surprise confrontation. The show features Julie Taymor directing with Glen Berger assisting in the writing. And U2 is creating music for the show. The principal creative and design team for "Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark" includes Daniel Ezralow, Choreographer ("Across the Universe," "The Green Bird"); George Tsypin, Sets ("The Magic Flute," "The Little Mermaid"); Eiko Ishioka, Costumes (Academy Award® for "Bram Stoker's Dracula," Tony Award® nomination for "M. Butterfly," the opening ceremonies for the Beijing Olympics); Donald Holder, Lighting (Tony® Awards for "The Lion King," "South Pacific"); Jonathan Deans, Sound ("Fosse," The Beatles "LOVE" by Cirque du Soleil, "Young Frankenstein," "Ragtime"); and Teese Gohl, Musical Supervisor ("Across the Universe," "Frida"). Additional members of the "Spider-Man" creative team will be announced at a later date. Tickets are available at Spider-Man on Broadway if you're excited to see if Spidey can hit a high note. The cast has yet to be announced, but don't be surprised if Hugh Jackman makes a cameo of some sort. Spider-Man hits Broadway
