Oh yeah, here's the link: Linky Linky (http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20070420/ennew_afp/entertainmentusfilm_070420160104)

I suppose the only good thing is that Bono is helping write the soundtrack.

My only other response?

*facepalm* Oy.

No kidding, read that about a week? ago or so and thought the same thing.... I guess if they figure Lion King and other sucesessful movies can become plays, why not Spiderman? Uhm... Not that I'm saying thats right, or anything...

I was hoping this was a bad joke when I clicked on it . . .

That's the problem with overpopularity. You get people with hair brained ideas who assume that because it has a popular name it'll sell. I'm not saying without seeing it that it's going to be a bad musical. . .it just seems like it's a bit much.

<shrug> People have some crazy ideas, eh?

You know, as much as this scares me, I am not surprised.

Heck, if they did a Gilligan's Island Musical...


then nothing is safe.

I can see the opening song...

"I was bitten!
I was bitten!
Oh the agony, the pain

I was bitten by a spider
what a shame,
what a shame

Now I shall cry all night
and when I wake
I'll have new might

or am I dreaming
am I crazy?
I killed my uncle!
oi vey"

(I was on a roll, there was no stopping.)

Why not! They've done Superman the Musical, and Captain America the Musical.

Oooh, I would so pay to see a musical of "The Tick" :)

Spiderman? Hmm. I do like that opening song there *grin*
