Who's Flying Off with the New Spider-Man Book?
Now this is more like it. Unlike last week when I got crickets in response to my giveaway quiz, a whole bunch of you wrote in for the chance to win the new book “Song of Spider-Man: The Inside Story of the Most Controversial Musical in Broadway History,” which just came out this week.
And all the folks who responded answered correctly that Alan Cumming was originally supposed to play the Green Goblin in Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. So once again, I put all their names in a hat and my husband K (who’s been getting a kick out of doing this) plucked one out. The lucky guy who's getting to fly off with the book (plus the tickets to the new musical Disaster!) is Kevin Smith. Congratulations to him and thanks to all the rest of you who participated.
I’ve got nothing else to giveaway (at least not for a while) and so will be returning to my regular news and reviews in future posts. But before I do, I thought those of you who didn’t win the book might find some consolation in reading about it in the following articles:
Click here for AP theater reporter Mark Kennedy’s interview with the book’s author Glen Berger.

And click here for a terrific review of the book that my friend Mark Harris did for the New York Times.
