The Green Goblin by Sheridan-J The Green Goblin by Sheridan-J
This was intended to be a quick speedpaint, but I ended up taking waaaay too long due to a mysterious illness I have acquired since returning home from my trip which caused me to make a vomit on the hour for the last 3 days :sick:

The Green Goblin, inspired by his look from "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark", played by Robert Cuccioli.

Yes, I saw Spider-Man the Musical in NYC :|

And yes..... it was AWESOME :rofl:

Seriously, it's not bad. I went in with Low-to-"Meh" expectations, and was pleasantly surprised at how well they pulled it off (after its refurbishing). Visually stunning and clever (like a pop-out comic book) and the songs weren't half bad either. I'm not a U2 fan, but the rock style of music suited the show. No jazz hands here. One of my favorite ensemble dance numbers involved a squadron of military, government soldiers that broke out into a contemporary mix of marching and hip-hop dance.

Oh, and Spider-Man. Doesn't. Sing.
He only sings as Peter Parker. The suited up Spider-Man is only there for the flying/fighting/action/stunt sequences.......which is cool by me haha.

Anyway, I liked the design of the Green Goblins costume in the show; designed by Eiko Ishioka (who also designed the costumes for Cirque du Soleil's "Varekai"). And he was probably the most awesome thing about the show. He had a very Scar-like persona going on (from "The Lion King" musical; also directed by Julie Taymore) which made him very likeable and amusing :lol:

Would I recommend the show if you're a general Spider-Man/U2/Bono/The Edge fan? Yes.
Would I recommend the show if you're a fan of shows in general? Absolutely!

I saw this breathtaking musical when Patrick Page was the Goblin, and I think he was fantastic. He also played Scar from the broadway production of The Lion King, so that drawly voice~ <3

Simply fantastic piece of art!

Saw it last week with my family. They hated it but I can't stop raving about it: it's as close as I'm ever going to get to seeing a Toku stage show.

What was your favorite song from the show?

Sorry for the late reply!

Spiderman Turn Off The Dark was AWESOME :rofl: I'm a huge theatre buff, seen lots of the classics, but this one....was something else. Really! Haha. It did what it was supposed to do; entertain the hell out of me :lol:

My favorite song is a close tie between "DIY World", and "Pull The Trigger"! :)

I like how there's glow within the hand and face. Not to mention, the wrinkles in the face are spectacular! The spark of the Pumpkin gives it a nice flare!
