Preview of Spider-Man Musical

I just got an email from Spider Bob, informing me of this preview for the upcoming Spider-Man musical, Turn Off the Dark. Honestly, I’m not sure what to say about this, other than the costumes are quite interesting.

Around the 2:38 mark you get to see a lot of costumes during one of Green Goblin’s songs. Why is there a dinosaur dancing behind him? Ah, the magic of theater.

Thanks for the tip, Spider-Bob!

  1. Apparently that ‘dinosaur’ is supposed to be the Lizard.
    Nice to see that they’ve taken a tragic and visually impressive character and reduced him to a blow up toy that looks like it belongs on the set of Peewee’s Playhouse.

    The major reason why this show will never work is because no one involved really knows or cares about the source material.
    I’m not against superheroes on stage, although it will always be difficult because most superheroes can fly or have other superpowers that can only be conveyed through the art in a comic or the magic of movies.

    Here’s hoping for better from the Batman stage show.
