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

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".

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.

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.

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.

i predict a "Swingers" musical within the decade

Add on Velvet Goldmine and there could be a whole Christian Bale based musical genre.

That would be so fun! There definitely should be.

"Do you like Phil Collins?
His songs are the shit.
Ensemble playing's great.
Sussidio, a favorite hit!"

Duncan described the musical as "The American Psycho score is, so far, completely electronic. Prophet 5, Moog, various drum machines. Imagine Depeche Mode as the pit band!" on his Twitter feed.

it's good to know the composer for the American Psycho musical has no fucking clue about the source material

Yes, that gives me a sad. They should have got Phil Collins.

tbh I think Duncan Sheik is incapable of giving anything but a sad

The $75 million Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark,” the most expensive theatrical production in history, will close in early January after months of declining ticket sales, one of the lead producers said on Monday night. A somewhat revamped version of the show is being planned for Las Vegas in 2015, according to the producer, Jeremiah J. Harris.

Incredible:

The new Australian musical “King Kong” has been considering a move to the Foxwoods after “Spider-Man” closes, but no official plans are in place. The Foxwoods is expected to undergo some renovations before its next tenant moves in.

!?!??!

A great bit:

Like many producers on struggling shows, Mr. Cohl made attempts through the summer and fall to recruit star names in hopes of reviving ticket sales — in the case of “Spider-Man,” talking to the rock musicians Alice Cooper and Gene Simmons about playing the villainous Green Goblin.

“We got fairly far along with Gene, but there just wasn’t time to get him into the show quickly enough to make a difference,” said Mr. Cohl, who knew both musicians from his years as a rock concert promoter.
