Just a few months ago, many were still wondering if Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark was ever actually going to happen. We finally got word in August that Spidey's Broadway musical will premiere on December 21st after the previews, which are set to begin on November 14th, and that means the cast and crew had to get together right away to really fine tune the piece. Sure enough, that must have been what was going on the past few weeks because just the other day Good Morning America was taken over by the production featuring a performance by Reeve Carney, the man who'll don the Spidey suit, and appearances by Bono and The Edge, who are responsible for the show's music and lyrics, as well as director and co-writer Julie Taymor.

Slash Film caught clips of the interview with the trio and it's packed with information concerning the highs and lows of the show's development as well as images of the set and the costumes. Taymor offered a peek at the stage's pop-up-like representations of New York City as well as glimpses of the Green Goblin costume and the design for another evil character, an entirely new one created for the show, Swiss Miss. Taymor explained, "She's made of all Swiss Army knives and cuts New York to pieces." I guess cutting New York to pieces will be done through her performance rather than more literally because Taymor mentioned that Swiss Miss is one of the show's primary dancers.
