Spidey does Broadway

Spider man If Shrek can do it, so can Spider-Man.  The guy best known from comic books and mega-hit movies is coming to Broadway in January 2010.  And the cred of its creative team is pretty major --  music and lyrics by Bono and The Edge of U2 fame, direction by Tony Award winner Julie Taymor, script by Taymor and playwright Glen Berger.

On their to-do list:  find a cast.  To that end, Telsey + Company is doing casting calls in Orlando, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and Austin.  And Orlando's up first, this Thursday, April 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Orlando Marriott World Center, 8701 World Center Dr.

The team is looking for someone to play Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man; his girlfriend Mary Jane; and the lead female villain.  The first two should be 16 to 20-something, the bad gal from 25 to 35.  All need powerful rock voices.
