THE STAR-SPANGLED MAN WITH A PLAN! Between The Avengers opening tomorrow and Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark finally being Tony-eligible, it's time to recall that in 1985, promises were made that Captain America: The Musical was going to arrive on Broadway in late 1985--it didn't even make it to out of town.  Perhaps even more bizarrely, the actors considered to play Steve Rogers?  John Cullum, Ken Howard, Richard Kiley, and Hal Linden.  Fortunately, the musical number in last year's film more than makes up for it.
