Law & Order: CI To Air “Spider-Man” Broadway Inspired Episode

When Bono and “The Edge” decided to make a Broadway musical surrounding Spider-Man there was some excitement and a lot of scepticism surrounding the show, especially by millions of comic fans. Fast forward several years later and the show has cost $70 million and is currently on hiatus after various actor injuries and production problems have occurred.

Now Dick Wolf, the creator of the Law Order franchise has decided to take a jab at the musical creating an episode that will surround a “high-flying, fast-crashing show called Icarus,” in which an actor is killed during the production and the director is “a high-strung born-again drunk and the composer is a bisexual rock star.

The Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark inspired episode will air on May 12, one month before the show’s expected and oft-delayed June 14th Broadway premier.
