Broadway Marvel: Spider- Man




Yes, Peter Parker a.k.a. Spidey, if my mole (naks!) is to be believed, will scale and crawl the sacred walls of Broadway next year.

This bit of marvelous info is from Mr. David Maisel himself, the chairman of Marvel Studios who revealed the news in an interview while attending the Thomas Weisel Consumer Conference in New York.

Mr. Maisel, who once worked in the Great White Way by way of the 1999 Tony- award winning musical Fosse confirmed that the musical has been in the works for the past 3 ½ years.

He also revealed that U2’s Bono and the Edge were commissioned to do the music and Julie Taymor (The Lion King) was tapped to direct the said musical.

This early, it will be interesting to know the songs that U2 will come up for this musical. No, “Itsy- bitsy spider” is not one of them, if you ask me.

I am sure it'll be a hit--with Bono's edgy music and all...and since you're based there, madali na lang for you to go and watch...*inggit*

I find it hard to imagine too but I'll be very interested to find out how this will play out. (No pun intended.) I'd be interested to hear the music too since two of my favorite songwriters will be doing the music. :)

I think I'd rather see a Harry Potter musical. :P

Sorry I haven't dropped by here in a long time. I decided to disappear from the blogosphere for over 6 months... to focus on stuff.

Anyway, I just returned to blogging today yesterday. :) So that means I'll be dropping by more often here to read your stuff and comment! :)
