Last week’s Spider-Man musical showdown seems to have had a successful conclusion, inasmuch as it resulted in positive press releases being sent out. Former Live Nation president Michael Cohl has been brought in to make sure the financially beleaguered production actually makes it to the stage; the inexperienced David Garfinkel, whose missteps are widely believed to be part of the problem, has been demoted to third, after Jeremiah J. Harris.

Most importantly, actor/musician Reeve Carney has been officially cast as Spider-Man; Carney stars in director Julie Taymor’s The Tempest as Prince Ferdinand, and heads his own band, Carney.

While people are saying the show will go on, no one is saying when — Spidey the Musical will miss is previous February start, and probably this year’s Tony Award nomination cut-off, as well.
