Opening soon on Broadway, Spider-man: Turn off the dark is an original production created by Julie Taymor and Glen Berger, with music by Bono and The Edge from U2, playing at the Foxwoods Theater on 42nd Street in Manhattan. While the show has not officially opened, it has been in previews for about two months, and last week I attended one of these previews.
If there’s one thing that ESPN is good at, its doing dumb things that no one cares about (“Whose Now” immediately comes to mind). Usually they do these things in slow sports months, like February. However, in one of the busiest sports months, ESPN The Magazine gives us a bunch of gimmicky Marvel comics NBA basketball covers. I have nothing against Marvel comics; Captain America is cool, but LeBron James as Captain America is not cool. Besides, he’s more like Captain Looking for the Easy Way to Win, which is the antithesis of what America stands for….but I’m rambling.
