Julie Taymor’s Spider-Man

March 5th, 2009 by

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Check out this awesome and unlikely combination: Spider-Man + Broadway musical+ Julie Taymor directing + U2 composing = Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.

I adore Julie Taymor and her entirely unique twisted dynamic view, so I can’t wait to see this show. They have cast Evan Rachel Wood as Mary Jane. I loved her as a young lesbian on ‘Once and Again’, and I thought she did a decent job in Julie Taymor’s ‘Across the Universe’.  No casting for Peter Parker yet, but they’re supposed to start rehearsing in the fall and debut in January 2010.

    This just sounds SUPER AWESOME. Even though it’s a musical. But music by U2! (So it can’t be that bad.)

    I want to go!

    I’m terribly curious how this will go. Taymor amazed me with ‘Titus,’ and her ‘Lion King’ design was impressive. But I’ve never been into U2 or Bonobo, so that part just leaves me cold.
