‘Geek Chorus’ Gets Dumped From Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark

The first big plot change of the post-Taymor era of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is here. The critically derided Geek Chorus, four comic-book fanboys who frame, comment on, and make up the plot of the show, has been cut. Taymor thought of the Geek Chorus as stand-ins for herself, Bono, and the Edge, so it's only fitting that they can no longer work together: onstage, as in life. [NYT]
