THE SCREENING ROOM: Meet Spider-Man's Newest Green Goblin, Robert Cuccioli (Video)
By Michael Gioia
Robert Cuccioli, best known for his Tony Award-nominated turn in the titular dual roles of Jekyll and Hyde, returned to Broadway this summer in the high-flying musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
Here, Cuccioli talks about taking on the dual roles of Norman Osborn and The Green Goblin at the Foxwoods Theatre.
Cuccioli, who received the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for his performance in Jekyll & Hyde, made his Broadway debut as Inspector Javert in Les Miserables. His Off-Broadway credits include Temporary Help, Enter The Guardsman, And The World Goes 'Round (1991 Outer Critics Circle Award), Gigi, The Rothschilds, Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris and Dietrich & Chevalier.
Inspired by over 40 years of Marvel comic books, Spider-Man, according to press notes, "follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down when he's bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek suddenly endowed with incredible powers soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains put both his physical strength and strength of character to the test."
