The release from Universal Press names Douglas Edwards as the new CEO of uclick. I think you got the facts in your headlines mixed up, Alan.

Me, a fan of Spiderman going back to the early 1970s… a Spiderman musical! What will it be called? Spiderman Musical? I don’t know if I should laugh, or cry. Just thinking of the music by U2, combined with some kind of inevitable Cirque Sole stunts, makes my mind collapse. Please keep it off the ice.
