According to the New York Times, yet another Spider-Man show will be making its New York debut this March. The Tank (W. 45th Street) will welcome Seattle import SPIDERMANN on March 13 for three performances. News of this third Spidey show comes just days after THE SPIDEY PROJECT: WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT RESPONSIBLITY was announced for a run at People's Improv Theatre on March 14. There is still no word if Broadway's SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK will open as scheduled or if the show will see yet another delay. 

The show, a creation of John Osebold, is described as  "a hastily-constructed abstract musical" that "threads together elements of the original comic book story, references to the buzz-heavy Broadway debacle, songs stripped down to their essential core, and dreamlike video sequences to create a new mythology in an art-house style." 

As for the Broadway production, SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK, word leaked out last week that producers asked Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to rewrite the book to the show. The original book was a collaboration between Julie Taymor and Glen Berger. This time around, the show will be reworked by a Spidey expert, as Aguirra-Sacasa has written Spider-Man comics for Marvel in the past. Additionally, he penned the book for Dallas Theatre Center's IT'S A PLANE, IT'S SUPERMAN!

Featuring direction by Tony® Award-winner Julie Taymor (The Tempest, Across The Universe, The Lion King), music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy® Award-winners Bono and The Edge, a book co-written by Taymor and Glen Berger (Underneath The Lintel) and one of the most iconic title characters of all time, SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark is the most ambitious production ever undertaken on Broadway and certainly the most expensive and most heavily watched productions in Broadway history.
