Auditions for the “Spider-Man” Musical


According to Ain’t It Cool News, the people behind the musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will be holding auditions across the United States starting this week. The musical will feature direction by Julie Taymor (Across the Universe, Frida, the Broadway version of The Lion King) and music and lyrics by…Bono and The Edge? Since when did they write for musicals?

Currently, they’re looking for people to play the leads. Here are the descriptions of what they’re looking for:

PETER PARKER – Male. 16-20’s. Must have a great rock tenor voice. Can be nerdy with understated sex appeal and a good sense of humor.

MARY JANE – Female. 16-20’s. Beautiful girl next door. Strong pop/rock singing voice required.

LEAD FEMALE VILLAIN – Female. 25‐35 years old. All ethnicities encouraged. Must have an amazing rock voice. Think Sinead O’Connor with a Middle Eastern/Bulgarian/Greek twist. Foreign and/or world music types are great. Foreign accents are great.

I’ll bet that the show will have a big number titled With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility. Yeesh.

Spider-Man comic panels: "With great power comes great responsibility"

I’m kind of shocked that with the exception of “amazing rock voice” I pretty much qualify for Lead Female Villain. I didn’t really think I was close to being anything villain-like at all!

Eva: And if the audition for that parts doesn’t work out, you could play one of the scientists at the science expo where Peter Parker gets bitten by the radioactive spider.

Hey, you could play the part of the radioactive spider! I’m sure that part gets a singing number.
