Spider-Man Ditches The "Geek Chorus"

| Filed under: Broadway Babies



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?

    It's a start. Its been dragging the show down since preview #1. Now if they can get rid of the spiderwoman….

    Wow, this show is STILL in previews? I guess if the Lookie-Loos keep coming to see the train wreck the show will go on. But seriously, why the fuck are people paying full price to see a show in previews?

    This show looked like a major boondoggle since it was concieved. But there is a saying "too big to deny" Taymor and Bono were able to throw their weight around to to get this waste of money funded. This is looking WORSE than TABOO.

    I saw the show and the geek chorus was awful….it is good they are making this change. the show has so much potential - the main problem is the music - it's just not good - pretty hard to have a musical with really bad music. i hope they can revamp - the costumes, flying and sets are incredible.

    also echo what tallguy10 said - spiderwoman should be next - stupid, stupid story line!

    If they have to explain what's going on, then the storyline is a mess.
