Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark opened on Broadway this weekend. Well, actually, it previewed this weekend, which is actually like a dress rehearsal with audience in it. Things did not go well.
The show stopped five times, mostly to fix technical problems, and Act I ended prematurely, with Spider-Man stuck dangling 10 feet above audience members, while Act II was marred by a nasty catcall during one of the midperformance pauses.
Yikes. This thing’s gonna cost $65 million before it gets over with. Hope they can iron out the bugs and recoup some of that dough.
