It seemed that Spider-Man:Turn Off The Dark, the Broadway musical was doomed from the start with the production suffering budgetary issues, actors getting injured attempting aerial stunts, not to mention personality clashes with the show's directing diva Julie Taymor. Now the story behind the web of chaos and collaboration is told from co-book writer Glen Berger who has penned Song of Spider-Man about what it was like to stand side by side with Taymor helping to create her vision, only to be spun out of control.
Glen tells host Robin Milling how a need to seek vengeance on then President Bush inspired the scene that would get him the gig. He describes, “the Green Goblin is tickling the ivories on top of the Chrysler Building, ending with him pushing the piano off in order to murder the little ants down below, and winding up caught in Spider-man's web.” Ironically he says that scene may have gotten him the job, but ultimately led to Taymor's dismissal.
Glen writes joyously about working with Taymor who he describes as a true artist with a capital 'A' and his devotion to doing whatever it took to realize that artistry. He admits it was a heady experience visiting the Edge and Bono in their Irish homes, watching them orchestrate the musical. Glen observes that problems actually began three months after he joined the project in 2005, six years before opening, when the lead producer Tony Adams dropped dead right as Edge was signing the contract!

It's time to think positive as the dynamic duo returns to the air waves to look back at two weeks of action. Dustin Parks and Patti Rodisch are not looking at what the sport lost, but instead what it has gained.
From A.J. Allmendinger having his breakout moment at Watkins Glen to Jeff Gordon gaining even more momentum at Michigan, these two are all over the last two weeks of action. Plus, Tuesday was Joe Gibbs Racing's special announcement at their headquarters. What exactly was revealed, and what does it mean for the future of the team?
That, and even a look at one of the most popular, and most anticipated races of the year, the night race at Bristol. How many sparks will fly when these drivers take to the Bull Ring for the second time this year, and in an ironic twist the second night race at the track this year?
The green flag on the program waves at 5:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. CT.
Glen Holt, or Glen "The Incredible" Holt, as he's known on stage, is the latest stand-up to emerge from the Boise, Idaho comedy scene. He's not afraid to admit to it either. Glen claims to be called "The Incredible" because he's not to be believed.
After practicing his act in the workplace for years, Glen "The Incredible" Holt made his debut at the 2009 Boise Curb Cup, and has since then made himself a regular in the Boise comedy scene. Glen is quoted as saying "Not being funny didn't stop Jay Leno, and it won't stop me."
On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles; we talk about today's Pure Michigan 400 @ Michigan. Jeff Gordon goes on to win his 91st career race. After a win at Indianapolis, he had strong runs at both Pocono and Watkin's Glen before mechanical failures. Today, he was able to put it all together for the 91st time in his career. A topic that will be talked about in every win from here on out... Is David Pearson catchable?
Joey Logano ran a great race. Todd Gordon very very very interesting pit strategy. Didn't take as much gas as others, gambling for the win, and it nearly paid off. Got the cautions he needed. With this team being esentially locked into the chase, is that the reason for this gamble?
Denny Hamlin's comments: "We just can't accelerate down the straightaway like that. Hendrick teams "should be embarrased that we were on their rear bumper... We're just slow. That's the best we've ran here in a long time. We'll just have to brave through it."
Kyle Busch bad luck again. Ryan Newman and Jimmie Johnson twice tapped Newman to get passed him. Newman made a comment on it.
Brad hits the wall and finishes in the top-10. Jimmie too great recovery for those guys. Jimmie broke his shifter.
And we've been challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge....

On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles, we talk about Tony Stewart's incident at Canandaigua Motorsports Park, where Tony Stewart and Kevin Ward, Jr got into an incident, which resulted in Ward climbing out of his car, and walking down the race track in the middle of the turn. Tony's car collided with Ward, sending Ward flying and resulting in his death. This incident resulted in Tony choosing to skip today's race in Watkin's Glen. We'll talk about our thoughts on the incident, and how the media is making Stewart out like a murderer.
Meanwhile, there was actually a race in Watkin's Glen. A.J. Allmendinger becomes the 184th driver ever to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

We'll break down the race, and discuss how Allmendinger was able to beat Marcos Ambrose, and a hard-charging Kurt Busch. This race also shakes up the Chase grid quite a bit because we didn't see Allmendinger coming. Who gets hurt the most by this? We'll discuss it.
