The cast of Bono\’s upcoming Spider–Man: Turn Off The Dark Broadway Musical photographed for the December 2010 issue of Vogue with Angelina Jolie on the cover by Annie Leibovitz.
The musical is being directed by Julie Taymor and features original music by US’s Bono, but it has been delayed (some thought it was going to be canceled) and will not make it’s debut until January 2011.Â Cast includes Reeve Carney as Spider-Man, Patrick Page as the Green Goblin and Jennifer Damiano as Mary Jane Watson.
Julie Taymor shares: “Spider-Man is a genuine American myth with a dark, primal power,” Taymor says. “But it\’s also got this great superhero, andâ€”hey!â€”he can fly through the theater at 40 miles an hour. It\’s got villains, it\’s got skyscrapers, it\’s colorful, it\’s Manhattan. I knew it would be a challenge, but I saw the inherent theatricality in it, and I couldn\’t resist.”
It sounds big and I hope they can pull it off, you can read the story at Vogue’s website: www.vogue.com.
