Amidst reports of production snafus, cast injuries, and swirling rumors about the most expensive budget Broadway has ever seen, stage and film director Julie Taymor has been understandably tight-lipped about her upcoming 'Spider-Man' stage adaptation. Lucky for her, she found herself facing press Monday alongside the musical's first, highly enthusiastic, celebrity critic: Russell Brand.
"I went to see it and it looked f***ing amazing," exclaimed Brand of 'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' during a press conference for Taymor's film adaptation of 'The Tempest,' in which he plays the buffoon Trinculo. "It's mental. It's like a new experience of theater -- it's going to change theater."
