About This Blog

I really like theatre, and I like writing and talking about it.

This blog is mostly about my relationship with theatre, the moments that make me fall in love with this art form, and the times when we don't always get along.

I'll be writing about things that I like, that I think are good and interesting and want to share. I will probably also write about things that I don't quite get, or think are wierd. I may also write about things that aren't theatre, strictly speaking, because it's my blog and I can.

Sweet Jesus They've Done It Again


Another actor injured during Spider-Man. Really hope the guy's okay. Is this just going to keep happening? Perhaps they should start taking the hint; if it's not possible to do the show safely...

EDIT: A subsequent article on Playbill.com has more information, although there is still a lot of speculation at this point. Safety inspectors are being called back to review equipment and practices.

They also posted some publicity pictures that give a better idea of what the show actually looks like

The masks are very Taymor-esque, and lend to the whole "pop-up comic book" theme.


  1. From the article (emphasis mine):

    "Michael Cohl, lead producer of Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, announced Dec. 17 that the new musical will delay its opening to Feb. 7, 2001, from the previously set Jan. 11 to implement changes."

    If they're going back in time, then I think they can rework the show...

  2. "History's about to change!"

    Well, good, we can just go back in time and fix it then!
