U2 limbering up for ‘Spider Man: Turn off the Dark’

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Here’s some news from Broadway:

Julie Taymor and U2 are limbering up for “Spider Man: Turn off the Dark.” Rehearsals begin shortly, Taymor says. She is thrilled, and so are we. At last, “Spider Man.”

Taymor says only two actors went to Las Vegas to have flying lessons–so I am correcting the previous item. She says, “We did our flying here. We have our own flying instruction.”
The sets are loaded into the (corporately named and easy to confuse) Hilton Theater, and everything is a ‘go.’ Previews will begin in October. An opening date has not been finalized. But it could be as late as Christmas week..

Meanwhile: Al Pacino’s run in “The Merchant of Venice” has been a gigantic success for the Public Theatre’s Shakespeare in the Park. The rumor now is that Pacino and company will transfer to Broadway soon after Labor Day. Nothing is confirmed, but this is what all parties want, so it will probably happen. Cross your fingers: it’s good news for theatre audiences and for the Public, which always needs to raise money.
