Spiderman musical: lone editor joke

The brickbats have been clattering down on the much-touted, much-delayed Spiderman musical written by Bono and The Edge and which has just opened on Broadway.

This typical review from the WSJ does us the favour of relaying the only funny line from what sounds like an otherwise limp script. The scoop-hungry editor of the Daily Bugle, J Jonah Jameson, hears about one of Spiderman’s exploits and is unimpressed. “Man in tights saves child? That’s the plot of “The Nutcracker”. Get me news!”
