SPIDER-MAN Cast/ Song Listing/ Understudies#1
Posted: 11/29/10 at 11:36pm
I tried to post this in the SPIDER-MAN preview discussion thread, but it got buried.

Would anyone who has a Playbill be willing to scan or post the listing of who plays which role, who sings which song, and who covers which role?

It would be greatly appreciated!
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

SPOILERS


Well, that's not such an easy question to answer, since the plot is so muddled. But I'll give it a go from what I could make of it. In the first act, it follows the plot of the movie fairly closely, Peter becomes Spiderman, he loves MJ, his uncle is killed, he fights the Green Goblin. At the same time, a new addition of a Geek chorus has four nerdy types inventing the story of Spiderman as it is being related. They are annoying, and a complete waste of time. Also at the same time, the mythological character of Arachne is introduced, she being a person who was transformed into a spider. In act 2, she kind of takes over the show, and things go really downhill. She has an erotic dream sequence with Peter, another group of villains appear, the Sinister Six, Arachne comes to town, gets a lot of shoes, and finally Peter ends up with MJ. If it all sounds confused, it's because it is!

When does Mary Jane seem like such a small role?

Spoiler Alert:
In the dream sequence Peter becomes controlled by his nightmare. He marries it instead of Mary Jane in another dream. He comes to terms with Arachne and she stops controlling him.
There's also a lot to do with what's real and what's fake, since Arachne has the Sinister Six "attack," but it wasn't real at all. It was a way to get him back to her.

Mary Jane gets to sing a good amount I think. Jennifer was amazing. It's an important role since Peter wouldn't have used his powers the first time if he wasn't trying to impress her.

renthead: i'm really impressed you got all that from the preview. totally see what you got but still, it's pretty confusing and quite a hard story to tell when so much else is going on around the stage. wasn't sure if i should listen to the music, watch the flying, follow the geeks, get into comic book land, watch the LED screens with all the graphic designs happing. Kinda kept forgetting it was a show about spiderman.

Playbill is slightly wrong. Picture This is the last song in Act 1, with Freak Like Me opening Act 2.

Still not sure I like how bumped up "If The World Should End" is but the duet aspect makes it pretty.

Just a note: "Think Again" was in the Playbill as of last night when I saw it BUT was not in the show. Was the song in it when the show came back and just got cut in the last few days?

I would assume that "Think Again" was in while they were rehearsing the reboot and thus why it made it to the playbill, but then got cut before the first 2.0 preview.

I don't quite understand how it would have worked with Arachne's new guardian angel persona.

It might not have worked but I feel that that and If The World Should end are the only "amazing" songs in the show...maybe rise above too.
