Now that Papa Bono has come to put his house in order (he’s had a pretty hands-off approach to the musical after coming up with the songs and dialogue, which may be part of the problem) he will be “very active” in talks with Taymor. This will either result in a) Getting more people on her creative team b) Hiring a co-directors or c) Firing the “Lion King” director altogether. Here’s five ways that :Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” would be different if Taymor left the production.
1.Spider-Man no longer flies through the air on wire, now just asks audience to close their eyes and use power of imagination.
2.Elaborate costumes now replaced with black shirt and jeans, sunglasses, and Irish accent.
3.Lead Spidey Reeve Carney continues to perform production like he’s giving a concert on “Good Morning America.”
4.To scale back costs on the most expensive Broadway production in history, “Spider-Man” will now be sharing a set with “Mary Poppin” and “Fat Pig.”
