All of Broadway is talking….about how sick they are of talking about “Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark.” (More news tomorrow, maybe!) It turns out you can do a musical comedy on the Book of Mormon and, even if you’re the South Park guys, you get no attention. This may be the first time Trey and Matt have gone looking for controversy and failed to find it. I’m with you, guys! If it’s one-fifth as funny as “Team America” it’ll be the hit of the year.
But those attempting to switch the subject have often found themselves ensnared by public fascination with “Spider-Man.”
During an interview last week on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” Messrs. Parker and Stone appeared less than enthused when Mr. Stewart raised the “Spider-Man” specter, asking whether they had considered “throwing people off of rafters on webs” in “The Book of Mormon.”
“It’s been done,” Mr. Parker replied, somewhat curtly.
