Oh what a tangled web we weave!
The scandalous "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" musical seems to have inspired an upcoming episode of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" featuring what appear to be fictitious counterparts of composer Bono and director Julie Taymor.
According to TVLine, the episode's plotline will revolve around the lavish but troubled Broadway play "Icarus," which detectives begin investigating after one of the show's stunts results in an actor's death.
Among the possible suspects? The musical's director, who is described as "high-strung and larger than life"— and possibly modeled after Taymor — as well as "Icarus" composer Arno, the one-named bisexual rock star who, according to TVLine, cheats on his wife with a colleague.
Season 10 of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" premieres May 1. Meanwhile, "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" is on hiatus while it undergoes an overhaul, and will return to the Foxwoods Theatre on May 12.
