'Spider-Man Rocks' Universal Studios[Thursday, May 16th, 2002]
A Spider-Man live action show will be starting up at Universal Studios Hollywood during the Memorial weekend. Heres more from their press release:
Universal Studios Hollywood spins a web of action adventure and intrigue in “Spider-Man Rocks!,” an all-new musical performance of rock-n-roll, hip-hop, stunts and theatrics beginning Memorial Day weekend.
Designed to appeal to the entire family, “Spider-Man Rocks!” recounts the comic book tale of Peter Parker, his school boy crush on the beautiful Mary Jane Watson and the infamous bite from a genetically altered spider that forever changed the high school student into one of the world’s greatest living superhero legends.
Capturing the essence of this classic Marvel Comic superstar, the stage performance is entwined with the danger and suspense wrought upon Peter Parker by his arch nemesis, the Green Goblin, and the ethical code by which Spidey’s lives his life: “with great power, comes great responsibility.”
A 20-minute live performance of adrenaline-pumping adventure, showcased in a 1,500 seat venue, “Spider-Man Rocks!” features a dynamic ensemble cast of dancing, singing and web-wielding actors. In show-stopping style, the performance highlights an elaborate display of stage pyrotechnics and high-flying stunts that literally propel the web-spinning Spider-Man more than 30 feet in the air at a distance of over 100 feet above the audience.
Flashy costumes fashioned á la comic-book chic in a palate of vibrant primary colors and a backdrop of larger-than-life sets coupled with an eclectic musical score and rhythmic choreography will spring “Spider-Man Rocks!” to life.
“Featuring such unique and ground-breaking attractions as Terminator 2: 3D, Jurassic Park-The Ride, The Nickelodeon Blast Zone, the world-renowned behind-
the-scenes Studio Tour and the new interactive “Special Effects Stages,” Universal Studios Hollywood is the world’s largest movie studio and theme park.
