THWIP! A Spidey Special

“We have to see this.” Never has a phrase been more apt for when the Comic Cast first heard that Bono and The Edge would be writing the music for a broadway musical about Spider-Man. Not only that, but it would be directed by Julie Taymor who had directed The Lion King musical – currently the 8th longest-running show in history. Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark. How could it not be the Best Thing Ever? Fraught with problems from the start, the show closes this month for several weeks hiatus in an attempt to salvage what some claim to be unsalvageable.  Liam & Craig ventured to New York to see it with their own eyes and review it with their, eh, own mouths. THWIP!

    It’s ‘Thwip’ not ‘Twip’ isn’t it? And they should have sung this version of ‘Rise Above':

    …and then all fell off some scaffold and died.

  2. thecomiccast Says:

    Absolutely right, Gar! It is ‘Thwip!’ That’s what I get for making a post in the middle of the night.

  3. Stephen Mooney Says:

    Savage show, lads. Really enjoyed it. That opening montage was really well produced. Love that crooner version of the spidey theme.

  4. thecomiccast Says:

    Cheers Stephen! Appreciate that!


  5. Andrew Judge Says:

    Great show! And your podcast wasn’t bad either. Mr. Mooney beat me to it: I thought the opening segment was really well put together. I think you should do the podcast from New York every week.

  6. thecomiccast Says:

    Very kind of you to say, Andrew! We have one more NY podcast coming this Tuesday but if anyone is willing to buy us a penthouse Manhattan apartment we will be only too happy to record from NY every week!
