Throwing out a web on this casting call
Casting for the U2/Julie Taymor Broadway-bound "Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark" is on and it hits Los Angeles on Saturday, April 18.
The 2010 musical, with books and lyrics by Bono and the Edge, is starting a nationwide open casting call for principals and understudies for the roles of Peter Parker, Mary Jane and the female lead villian.
The announcement says: "The production is looking for performers with dynamic rock/pop voices including those with experience in bands and as solo performers. Regardless of experience, anyone who thinks they might be qualified is encouraged to audition."
