First insane photos appear from the Spider-Man Broadway musical

Nov. 15, 2010by: Paul Tassi

We've been hearing about a Spider-Man musical for a while now, but it keeps getting delayed for one reason or another. The latest ailment for the production is that it's been pushed to January 2011 because of an actor injury, but this thing is determined to get made.

What you're about to see is a taste of what you can expect from the musical, famed photographer Annie Liebovitz took these snaps for the December issue of Vogue, and they feature director Julie Taymor's patented over-stylized, over-saturated aesthetic.

They show Peter Parker, MJ, the Green Goblin, Carnage and a villain I've never heard of named Swiss Miss makes an appearance in the play, which is titled Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and as absurd as it looks, I actually want to see it just to see how WTF it actually ends up being.

Check out the shots below.

Oh she's a Swiss Army Knife...Person

Or How Carnage went to Japan and got some dirty ideas for MJ.
And now, some lyrics for all the musical suggestions:
Harold and Kumar-“Dude, fuck it let’s go, Dude, fuck it let’s go, We gotta go get some fucking White Castle Burgers, Dude, fuck it let’s go!”
Predator-“Sitting in a tree, waiting on a soldier to skin alive! Hoping they come by so I can gut them with my awesome gauntlet blades. Oh I can’t wait to cut them, skin them, flay them, add their skulls to my collection back home…

The Big Lebowski- See the Harold and Kumar song, but substitute the parts about White Castle with bowling.
Goonies-“Me and Chunk, we’re best pals, we share candy, we’re best pals, I know he’s ugly but I’m fat, so it’s all right with me.”
Hellraiser-“Oh, I’ve got a deadly puzzle box of doom, here it is for everyone to see, Angel, Demon, no one knows what I am, Like I care, I’m here to scare, and nothing’s what it seems”
Fight Club-“Has it really come to this…hugging this fat sack of piss, I’ve really sunk low, but There’s no where left to go, Has it really come to this?”
Highlander-“So here we are, we’re the masters of the universe…”
American Psycho-“I need to return some tapes, I need to return some tapes, Can’t you see my dilemma, If they’re late I cannot got none, Until I pay the asshole at the Store.”
Man VS. Everything: The Chuck Norris Story-“When he was born he slapped the doctor and his mother, he had already had sex three time, he nailed the nurse two minutes later cuz he came out looking like he did in ’72.”
Also, “His tears cure cancer, too bad he doesn’t cry. Please cry Chuck Norris, please cry, You can throw two toddlers into the sun this year!”

Hmmm......

Interesting looking if anything. The Green Goblin almost looks better here then in the movie, almost.

Tidbit: American Psycho. I can just picture Patrick Bateman singing the "I Need to Return Some Video Tapes" song, epic.

I wish I couldve seen the Lestat play. I used to go on field trips to plays in elementary school so I can appreciate them but this is something I would love to see dead. The Spiderman property has really gone down hill

Bad day to be a Spidey fan. At least there's the reboot which promises to rock.

BAHAHAHA

This looks SO GAY. I smell a Tony coming Julie Taymor's way.

Seriously, it wasn't bad enough she butchered the Beatles? Now we have to see Carnage and the Green Goblin imagined by a over funded prima-donna? Although in all fairness you could make the argument Sam Raimi is also an over funded prima-donna.

But at least he didn't put U2 in his movies....

Goonies: The Musical. They can have a Sloth/Chunk musical number, ala Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle in Young Frankenstein.

Wow. This actually looks fun. Great style. I love that last image.

EDIT: Though I do agree that a Spiderman Musicical is rather lame. And in context...yeah. Strange. Visually nice though.

Notice in the first picture how most of the theater seats are empty?


Seriously, if Annie Liebovitz take photographs of your costumes and they still look utterly ridiculous... you have a problem.

Umm...

So... can I turn Rent into an 3 hour action epic where a bunch of 30 somethings fight off demons with automatic weapons and flying ninjas? Or Next to Normal into a happy colorful animated comedy where the mother is addicted to Pez? Because I'm going to fucking do it. Fuck you Broadway. FUCK YOU!!!

skeptic but willing to give it a chance

Julie Taymore is a wonderful director and if she says it's good, i'll trust it until i can get my own opinion from watching/listening to the show.


i would like to see "Pete's Dragon" on broadway. It's perfect for the stage
