Spiderman is George Takei – Not Peter Parker!

April 20th, 2011

This was just too funny a video not to share with the ICT family. We are sure that you have heard about the new Spiderman musical ( actual name Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark) and the terrible issues that it has dealt with in trying to bring the production to creation. We don’t want to say the show has had major issues, but it certainly is difficult to bring a musical to Broadway when you have actors critically injured in rehearsal and previews, fired the director, choreographer and the book writer and had to rewrite some of the songs just weeks before your opening. Not that any of this means the show is not going to be very good, but it is safe to say the producers of this show are having problems getting it up and running.

Have no fear though great people of America! If there is one person who can turn this headache into a smile, it is the one and only George Takei. We know, we know, you didn’t even think of him but it is true – George Takei will save the Spiderman musical! Don’t believe us? Take a look.
