SPIDER-MAN IS OFFICIAL...AT LAST!
It is a year later, and nothing surprises me about this show anymore...
CHESS AT SIGNATURE: THE VIDEO
I will not be posting my review of the show until it officially opens in a couple of weeks, but thought I might post this video they put together to promote the show. You will notice that the signature song (no pun intended) they are using is "Nobody's Side," a song that gets the same emphasis in production. What I will say is that the video is slickly produced and does reveal the strongest aspect of the production, though not necessarily in the visual sense. I would love to hear from you what you think of this video, and if you saw the show in Virginia, too, let me know what you thought. I wonder which "side" of the consensus opinion I will be on...
