Someone posted on the ATC Broadway board that a high-profile visitor to Broadway’s troubled Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, who is famous from American Idol, might have gone as a precursor to possibly taking over one of the roles in the show.
That’s pretty vague — someone please turn off the dark — but occasionally the comments thrown at the wall on that board turn out to be almost sort of semi-true.
And the person in question sounds like Kelly Clarkson, who became famous under the gaze of Simon and the gang, and who did indeed see Spidey not long ago.
Does she sing well in double harness?
