04 Oct 2013
Rock singer and songwriter Alice Cooper, who recently concluded a tour with heavy metal singer Marilyn Manson and is continuing to tour the globe with his "Raise the Dead" show, is in negotiations to join Broadway's Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, according to the New York Post.
Although the Post reported that the idea of casting Cooper as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin comes from the show's producer, Michael Cohl, a spokesperson for Spider-Man told Playbill.com that there is "no news" regarding Cooper.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
