Adam Lambert heading for Broadway after Idol? It seems to be a trend considering all the other Idol alum that have followed their time on that reality show to The Great White Way. (Taylor Hicks, Clay Aiken, Fantasia, Ace Young, Diana Degarmo, and *ETA edit* Constantine Maroulis who is making a career out of it - that and calling Bingo and performing at Borders Click link.)
Buzz has it that the new “Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark” is set to open Feb. 18, 2010. Bono and The Edge of the immeasurably popular band U2 are developing the musical's score. Broadway TV reports, "While hard details about the design and direction of Spider-Man The Musical are as yet uncertain, it can be assured that whether you're a fan of the comics, the movie or just Broadway, Julie Taymor et al. seem to be preparing a spectacle of amazing proportions. Nuff' said!"
Currently Jim Sturgess is the forerunner for the role of this upcoming production but now across the Broadway cyber-sphere, talk is including Lambert as a possible replacement for Sturgess. Of course much of that may depend on young Lambert, what he has planned for his career and yes, how well this karaoke reality show continues to go for him.
It's very cool, considering on my comic-geek side I'm a freak for Spiderman.
