Last week we showed you a cool behind-the-scenes for the upcoming comic book adapted Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.” Today, we have a new TV spot to show you.
Directed by Julie Taymor, there hasn’t been any stage production more ambitious or troublesome than “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.” Honestly, I really don’t have any expectations for it other than the feeling that it’s a multi-million dollar disaster in the making.
Here is the official synopsis for the new Spider-Man Broadway musical:
Featuring direction by Tony® Award-winner Julie Taymor, music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy® Award-winners Bono and The Edge, a book co-written by Taymor and Glen Berger and one of the most iconic title characters of all time, SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is the most ambitious production ever undertaken on Broadway and finds astonishingly fresh ways to tell a story inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books. The show follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down 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 incredible powers soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains put both his physical strength and strength of character to the test. SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark will thrill the audience through a unique entertainment experience in ways never- before-dreamed-possible in live theater.
“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” is still undergoing development and will officially be opened to the public January 11th, 2011.
