Spidey’s coming to Broadway! Spider-Man: The Musical is coming together with a little help from Bono, The Edge, and ‘Lion King’ stage director Julie Taymor (all of whom have a ‘great passion’ for the the web-slinging superhero). The search for Peter Parker is on, and auditions have already started! Producers are looking for an actor in his late teens/early 20s with ‘a great pop/rock voice.’ Actors take note: the first reading for the 15 million dollar show will take place in July. News of the show comes right before Spider-Man Week in NYC, a celebration of the superhero from Queens that will take place between April 30 and May 6. Before you get sign up for your Broadway tickets remember, Spider-Man 3 comes to theaters May 4! Check out their site at spider-manweeknyc.com
