They kind of ruined "Boy Falls From the Sky" with the new ending to the song, but it's still pretty good, I guess.

What was the ending to the song like before? I don't know when I saw it and heard Reeve sing it live, the way he sang that song and the ending gave me chills. Had that been the end of the show I probably would have gave him a standing ovation as well haha

But my favorite song still goes to Jennifer Damiano's "If The World Should End". Jen is really really talented.

They took out the long "and you belieeeeeeeeeve" at the end of the song and replaced it with "and you believe, believe, believe, believe, believe, believe... etc." It's kind of silly.

They also sped up "Rise Above," but at least in that instance the new ending to the song is really good.

Oh really? Hmm well nonetheless, Reeve killed it on "Boy Falls From the Sky". He blew me away with that performance of his.

I wish Bono and The Edge wrote more songs like that and "Rise Above" "If The World Should End" for the show. Most of the Green Goblin's songs and the ensemble numbers "D.I.Y. World" "Bullying by Numbers" was just plain unbearable.

Just got a naughty audio of the new version, i do really like many of the numbers in it, the show seems to have more humour and much more sense to it now.

I agree If the World Should End, Rise Above and Boy Falls are great songs

The comedic lines are much more campy and self aware now. I don't really like that aspect as much, but it was like that in the movies too so I guess that's what they were going for.

I just think it gives it more of a feel of fun, the villans deliver most of them and i think its a good balance having those and then the more serious story of Peter and MJ etc

I still think Peter and MJs relationship is a little confusing. She mentions in one scene that she's not really dating Flash and then suddenly in the second act she and peter are breaking up and I didn't even realize they had gotten together. Although, it could just be a lack of visuals.

Anyone have the new official understudy list? I know America Olivo left the cast as an Arachne understudy.

"Turn Off the Dark" sounds soooo much better now. Beofre it sounded like a dreadful dirge, but from what I have heard now, the song is just goregous. It sounds a lot more dreamy and magical, and I love the added dialogue between Arachne and Peter.

Could anyone please send a link of the new recording or at least give a hint about how to find it? That would be really appreciated thanks.
