Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Producers Hire More New People To Save The Show

| Filed under: Broadway Babies

spiderman musical bring in new musical consultant to fix orchestration

You know that saying/Queen song that goes, "the show must go on" ? Yeah, maybe that isn't the case for Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark if they need this much extra help to make it work.

So far, the producers of Bono's Spider-Man musical have hired a new writer to rework the show's book, a co-director to reign in Julie Taymor and now, they've announced they've hired a new musical consultant to work on the orchestration.

Producers have revealed to sources that they have hired Paul Bogaev, whose previous Broadway credits include Tarzan, Bombay Dreams and Aida, to work with the cast and orchestra on the musical arrangements and sound quality of the songs.

So, the acting is no good, the story's no good and the music's no good.

Why exactly should people shell out $200 bucks for a seat to this show again???

    i saw this last night and while it wasnt the best broadway show ive ever seen… what you just wrote couldnt be farther from the truth. i was front row and the acting was GREAT… it's not their fault if the script is a little….. weird…… but honestly, it gets the job done, it's exciting, not life changing, but it's SPIDERMAN. say what you what, but standing ovations don't lie and 90% of the crowed was standing at the end cheering their ass off. honestly i think the WORST thing about it were the songs…. they woulda been better off hiring a showtunes writer and camping it up instead of trusting bono to make it dark AND the songs good enough. they werent TERRIBLE but some of the songs seem kinda forced, out of place… almost filler… the acting is NOT terrible. nor is the play as a whole. i REALLY enjoyed it. not to mention, there wasn't a SINGLE flub (that the audience could pick up on anyway) or technical problem. NOT ONE.
