“My Spidey-Sense is Tingling / What’s a Good Rhyme for Tingling?”

spiderman-musical.jpgBack in April, I mentioned the first inklings of a Broadway Spider-Man musical. According to the National Ledger, plans for the show continue apace, as director Julie Taymor and the show’s backers are looking for a space to put it on. Bono and The Edge, who in this context sorta sound like a superhero team themselves, developed both the book and the lyrics for the production. “It will have some fabulous things in it because it’s got a very strong book,” Taymor told a reporter. But since earlier reports indicated that the show would revolve around Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson, it’s probably safe to rule out the possibility of Gwen Stacy’s death becoming the falling chandelier of twenty-oughts musical theater.

Let’s just hope it doesn’t turn out like It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman!
