To all those nerdy theater arts kids who thought Bono had finally written a role with them in mind - consider your dreams dashed.
In what of what are sure to be MANY changes from to the creative format of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, sources reveal that the show's "Geek Chorus" has been nixed. The idea stemmed from the use of a chorus in classical Greek dramas and featured three comic geeks and a young woman who would show up intermittently to explain some key plot points.
However, when pushed for more details on the change, a spokesman for the show would only say:
“The production will not comment on any substantive changes to the show."
Makes sense. In actuality, it was Julie Taymor who came up with the idea of having the Geek Chorus. She's out, so why shouldn't all of her contributions?
