Gaze in awe at the first 5 images from the Spider-Man musical

Fans of both Spidey and musical theater will have to wait until Nov. 28 to see Julie Taymor's Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark on Broadway, but you can get a peek at the show right here. And, boy, is it an eyeful.

Noted photographer Annie Liebovitz shot the cast of Turn Off the Dark in full costume for Vogue magazine, and, while we won't get the full Spidey effect without the U2 songs, this is pretty much what the show looks like.

Decide for yourselves if these are hot, heresy or hilarious. Me? I'm totally going to see Turn Off the Dark at some point during its run on the Great White Way. Whether the train wrecks or pulls safely into the station, it'll be something to see.
