It’s official! BroadwayWorld.com is reporting that Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark will make it’s Broadway debut on February 18, 2010 at The Hilton Theater. The show is directed by Tony Award-winning Lion King director Julie Taymor and features music & lyrics by Bono and The Edge of U2 fame.
The production will cost a reported $40 million, making it the costliest Broadway production to date. Part of the enormous price tag stems from a massive cityscape set that includes skyscrapers for the web slinger’s acrobatics. (The rest all goes to Bono)
Bono and the Edge are currently distracted by the leak of U2’s most recent album No Line On The Horizon, so I thought I might offer my assistance by getting the ball rolling with some song suggestions! Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
He Moves In Mysterio Ways
Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Stan Lee
Sunday, Bloody Sundaily Bugle
Rattle and Venom
The Morlunforgettable Fire
Doc Octung Baby!
All That You Stan Lee Behind
A Brand New Day Without Me
Jack Kirby-utiful Day
