New Creative Team Additions Announced for Spiderman The Musical Lead producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris announced today that SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark has a newly expanded creative team in place. The team will be implementing a new plan to make significant and exciting revisions to the production. Opening night (previously set for March 15, 2011) has been rescheduled to an evening in early summer, 2011. This amended schedule will allow the time necessary to execute the plan, which will include revisions to the script. Don’t miss your chance to see Spiderman on Broadway.
The additional time commitment required by this new plan of the Spiderman Musical on Broadway will make it impossible for director and co-book writer Julie Taymor to continue on in her day-to-day duties with the production. Philip William McKinley and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa have joined the creative team to help implement new staging and book rewrites, respectively. McKinley has vast experience directing technically complex productions on Broadway and beyond. Aguirre-Sacasa is both an acclaimed playwright and a noted writer of Spider-Man comic books. The expanded creative team also includes musical consultant Paul Bogaev (Tarzan, Bombay Dreams, Aida, Sunset Boulevard) and sound designer Peter Hylenski (Elf, Scottsboro Boys, Rock of Ages, Shrek), both of whom have already been working on improving the musical arrangements and sound quality (respectively) over the past few weeks, thereby vastly enhancing the audience experience of the Spiderman Musical.
Producers of the Spiderman Musical ; Cohl and Harris said, in a joint statement, “Julie Taymor is not leaving the creative team. Her vision has been at the heart of this production since its inception and will continue to be so. Julie's previous commitments mean that past March 15th, she cannot work the 24/7 necessary to make the changes in the production in order to be ready for our opening. We cannot exaggerate how technically difficult it is to make such changes to a show of this complexity, so it's with great pride that we announce that Phil McKinley is joining the creative team. Phil is hugely experienced with productions of this scale and is exactly what SPIDER-MAN Turn off the Dark needs right now.” Just from the previews, you can tell that Spiderman the Musical on Broadway will not be a show to miss. Catch Spider-man show out of all the Spiderman show times to choose from.
Bono and The Edge added, “Julie is a truly gifted and imaginative director. This is an epic ride, and the standing ovations we have seen from the preview audiences have confirmed our absolute faith in the project. We are listening and learning and, as a result, we have a couple of new songs we are very very excited about putting into the mix. All of us on the creative team are committed to taking SPIDER-MAN to the next level. We are confident it will reach its full potential and when it does, the Spiderman Musical will open.”
Spider-Man Exclusive Leaning against the mezzanine's back wall at the Foxwoods Theater in Times Square, Reeve Carney is watching Spiderman fly through the air in the latest broadway rendition of the Spiderman Musical. See Spiderman show times listed above to see the Spiderman show.
It's the Saturday matinee performance of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, and it's the one show each week that stars his understudy. (Hey, even superheroes need time off.) Yet Reeve can't stay away, so he snuck upstairs to be a fly—or, in this case, a spider—on the wall and watch the action.
It's a trip, watching Spiderman watch Spider-Man. He claps enthusiastically. He nods his head intently. When understudy Spiderman flies through the air at speeds nearing 40 miles an hour, Reeve leans in and whispers, "I like pieces of art that unfold over time. Which is why I like this show, even though it is a little confusing. I know some of the reviews have been, 'I don't understand the plot,' but I think that's kinda nice. Art to me is something that arrests you rather than pulls you in and forces you to listen." With so many set changes lately, the Spiderman show times change, so see the show soon.
Unfortunately for Reeve, he's been forced to listen to some of the worst reviews in Broadway history. The New York Times and The Washington Post called Turn Off the Dark one of the worst musicals of all time. Others dubbed it "dull," "inconsistent," "beyond repair," and "barely good enough for a local amusement park." The Post's Michael Riedel called it an "epic flop," seeming to delight in chronicling its demise from day one. Hopefully when the show is in full swing, the reviews will be much better. I, for one, think that once they work the kinks out, everyone will be swinging in the see Spiderman the Musical on Broadway. Spiderman show times are always updating so keep checking back.
