The web continues to spin out of control at the beleaguered Spider-Man play in New York. You may have heard the production is being pushed back until summer and Julie Taymor is out as director. There's a lot of retooling afoot.

The Onion A/V Club has a great write up on the matter in their inimitable style:

This is going to make all its money back just from people hoping to see someone fall to their death. So it's got that going for it, I guess.

I'm praying that Taymor being ousted means the show will get a new title (among other changes).

I'm not sure if this is good news or bad news since I'm beyond caring about this debacle and only concerned that this further retooling will continue to occupy Bono and Edge's attention. U2 is allegedly supposed to have a new album out in May, but if this goddamn musical keeps interfering in things, it will set back/postpone/delay indefinitely the recording process.



"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

Now I feel a pang of regret for not seeing Taymor's debacle in all its glory, despite being in NYC numerous times the last few months. I sort of fail to see the point of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark without Julie Taymor.

Off topic, but in other Broadway news, Trey Parker and Matt Stone also have a musical called "The Book of Mormon" in NYC. This amusing Tweet from Russell Crowe appeared yesterday:

@russellcrowe Russell Crowe
So a friend called about the South Park chaps musical about to open in NYC." I absolutely laughed my ass off, but now I feel guilty"

He should go! Russell Crowe sitting in audience for "the South Park chaps'" musical would be like Conan O'Brien sitting in the audience of the Tonight Show.

I was expecting this to be about Loonatics.
