Law & Order: Criminal Intent to Take on Spider-Man Musical

The Law & Order franchise continues its headline-ripping ways:  Law & Order: Criminal Intent will take on the troubled Broadway production Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark in an upcoming episode, TVLine reports.

In addition to all the usual suspects and heroes, there will be a "geek chorus," which, according to the casting breakdown, consists of "three teenage boys and one girl who meet to ritualistically retell the greatest Spider-Man stories." At least they got the guy-to-girl geek ratio right. — Reporting by Raven Snook read more
