    The character breakdowns provide some insight to plot points as the character Arachne ("female, 20-35 years old, any ethnicity") is described as "a beautiful, boastful young woman turned into a spider for her hubris and lack of respect for the gods. She subsequently appears to Peter Parker and the audience as in turn a powerful spider-woman who comes from another time to inspire Peter; an otherworldly lover; a bride; a terrifying (and sexy) dark goddess of vengeance; a dance partner in a charged and violent spiders dance of death; and, finally, a lonely, fragile young woman." Casting is seeking a "strong Celtic, Balkan style, e.g., Sinead O'Connor," noting, "outside the box ideas are welcomed. Could be someone from the music industry." Wow! That sounds like it's going to suck!

      Look, Taymor isn't completely unfamiliar with Spider-Man, but you know hiring her that it's going to be a bit avant-garde. The question is how do we get to a point where it can succeed both as Spider-Man story and as musical. It ain't easy, ask Joss Whedon.
