New Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Producers Say They “Stepped in Dog Poo”
Michael Cohl, one of the producers taking over Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark after Julie Taymor‘s tenure ended abruptly last month, has provided this super-encouraging quote on the musical he is currently reworking and whether or not it will ruin his reputation as a producer:
“It might … It’s a matter of the respect of those whose opinions I care about. Most will recognize that [co-producer Jeremiah Harris] and I stepped in dog poo and are trying to clean it up and pull off a miracle. We might not.”
Well, there’s something to look forward to! Dog poo. Dog poo that might still be dog poo when all is said and done. So, go ahead and make those reservations, dog poo-lovers! The show comes back in previews on May 12.
In other news, Christopher Tierney, who played Spidey in the original production and was hospitalized after falling from the Spidey stage back in December, will return in his original role. That, my friends, is a trooper.
