More Maleficient than Green Goblin, I'd think.

if those are Spidey's natural thighs I am envious of MJ (they're a couple now apparently)

Reeve Carney sounds like a Spiderman villain name.

Is this thing still going?

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 25 October 2011 18:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was going to post more or less the same thing. I totally forgot about it.

On the plus side, that means no one else has been hurt.

Yet.

That's because they've switched to an all-Nerf cast.

Its success feels similar to that of "Avatar," just this sort of gormless achievement. It's like citing the longevity of Twinkies or whatever. At a certain point you just have to throw up your hands and sigh.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 4 January 2012 15:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

pretty sure that's the end of act 2

"Taymor refused to develop a musical that followed the original, family-friendly Spider-Man story, which was depicted in the Marvel comic books and the hugely successful motion picture trilogy based on them. Instead, Taymor, who admits that she was not a fan of the Spider-Man story prior to her involvement with the musical, insisted on developing a dark, disjointed and hallucinogenic musical involving suicide, sex and death."

And dangerous falls and stunts.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 18 January 2012 16:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

i'm as amazed that they wanted a musical based on 'the hugely succesful motion picture trilogy' of Spiderman as i am by the fact that the director wasn't a Spiderman fan. to say nothing of her only being fired after the previews, if the entire story she was telling wasn't what they wanted!

is that a lot? not being sarky. i'm assuming it's surprising they got any?

piscesx, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:36 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah two technical noms - that's like Alice In Wonderland getting Best Visual Effects at the Oscars

da croupier, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:39 (1 year ago) Permalink

"Best Scenic Design Of A Musical" and "Best Costume Design Of A Musical" - hey, two of the parts Julie Taymor is suing over

da croupier, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:43 (1 year ago) Permalink

are the TONYs about as respected as the Oscars or way less or more respected? you know how say the Oscars are considered to get it wrong a lot of the time etc?

piscesx, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:45 (1 year ago) Permalink

the TONYs cover a far, far smaller realm of potential nominees than any of the other big awards. Instead of an entire medium, it covers a multi-block radius, so getting it "wrong" in the nomination pool is tough.

da croupier, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:50 (1 year ago) Permalink

ha, it's up against "Once," "Ghost" and "Newsies" for Scenic

da croupier, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:51 (1 year ago) Permalink

Would like to see a version of "Once" with a superhero busker.

caro's johnson (Eazy), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:52 (1 year ago) Permalink

considering Once has rave reviews and the other three noms for "costume" (Follies, Porgy & Bess, that Matthew Broderick Gershwin thing) all have more than a shred of appreciation, it seems unlikely anyone from Spidey will be approaching the stage - or more likely having their name said in a scroll of "other awards given".

da croupier, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

this was actually a massive snub; not getting a nom for best musical especially when Leap of Faith got one is a major fuck you to the whole produciton

But Andrew Garfield is nominated for best supporting actor in a drama, so the movie Spidey winning an award is a possibility.

Respectfully, Tyrese Gibson (Nicole), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 15:37 (1 year ago) Permalink

considering how well the musical is doing, it's pretty possible they'll find a way to shoehorn a spot for spidey in the festivities since the tonys are still a big national ad for Broadway. Or maybe they'll just show a lot of ads.

da croupier, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 17:14 (1 year ago) Permalink

considering the recent spurt of musicals based on ridiculous early '90s movies, i'm shocked they haven't announced an adaptation of Swing Kids yet.

da croupier, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 17:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

i predict a "Swingers" musical within the decade
