Who Will Spidey Face on Broadway?

The New York Post sneaked into an event this week for Julie Taymor’s upcoming Broadway show “Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark” (full details here) and learned more about the villains in the story, which Taymore described as a “circus rock-‘n’-roll drama.” Here’s an excerpt from the article:

As Spider-Man, Peter clashes with a parade of Marvel villains — Green Goblin, Carnage, Electro, Rhino, Swarm and Lizard.

Berger and Taymor have invented a new baddie for the show — Swiss Miss, whose costume, designed by Oscar winner Eiko Ishioka (“Bram Stoker’s Dracula”), consists of rotating knives and swirling corkscrews.

Five young singers performed six songs from the show, including the haunting “Rise Above,” which is as good as any rock ballad in “Rent.”
