The Goblin DOES have a heart. (well, at least Bob Cuccioli does)

Lenk has also been seen in iWitness at the Mark Taper Forum; Elemeno Pea, Cloudlands and Caucasian Chalk Circle at SouthCoast Repertory; the title role in Lovelace: A Rock Opera, for which she won LA Weekly and Garland awards; and her solo music project, moxy phinx.
Inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books, Spider-Man, according to press notes, "follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down when he's bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek suddenly endowed with incredible powers soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains put both his physical strength and strength of character to the test."
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
