Yes, Turn Off the Dark is still going, band the show visited David Letterman the other night to showcase its… thing. Whatever it is. I’m sure kids might like it maybe, I don’t know. I’m not terribly impressed.

So… Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark has been “reimagined” and is coming back to Broadway

The first time around, despite having spent millions on the production, Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark was a flop, a sham, a shame and a disaster. Reviews were mediocre, actors were getting seriously injured left and right, performances were delayed or canceled and it seemed like the only reason people were even buying tickets was with the hope that they’d see someone break their pelvis. And then Julie Taymor left the production and it was all put on hold.

First pictures from Spiderman: Turn off the Dark. Can we kill this with fire already?

I don’t know if you’re like me on the upcoming Broadway disaster “Spiderman: Turn off the Dark”, but I keep hoping that it’s just a horrible, horrible dream and that I’ll wake up any moment in a world where U2 isn’t co-writing awful Broadway musicals about Spiderman.

The Spiderman musical will be just as pretentious and douchey as you thought it might be

The Spiderman Broadway musical “Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark”, which was off again and now on again and will be written by U2’s Bono and the Edge, and as you can see, will be just as awful and douchey as you would imagine a Spiderman musical written by U2 would be. Reeve Carney, above showed up on Good Morning America to talk about the musical and sing a little number. He’s the guy playing Peter Parker.

Oh, and check out the design of Green Goblin. Jesus wept.
