Another version of Peter Parker was quietly boxed away today, with the announcement that Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark will be shutting down production next year. The most expensive production to ever hit Broadway – and one which became more expensive once the cast members started getting seriously injured seemingly every month – there are […]
It turns out the drama- and deficit-plagued Spider-man Broadway musical wasn’t enough to turn Marvel off live theatrical events. Thus they are launching ‘The Marvel Experience’ in 2014, a $30 million “interactive road show with a “4D motion ride” and high-tech attractions featuring Marvel’s most popular superheroes.” It’s a joint venture between Marvel and something […]
While America has been been locked in a massive ideological battle over birth control and offensive radio show hosts of late, in Canada, they have even more powerful and shocking issueS that galvanize a nation to action.

Well, it looks like The Beatwill have to see Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark again! Because when it officially opens–in JUNE this time–it could be a different show.
The NY Times reports that what everyone was whispering yesterday was true: the opening has been delayed until June, and the production — the most expensive in Broadway history — will take a break to try to fix some of the problems, and probably bring in a fixer.
So I finally got to see Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.
I use the word “finally” although the show has only been in previews for a couple of months — still nearly the longest preview run of any show ever.

I also predicted it would be great — hm, that is maybe one half a point. But NO ONE could have predicted the rest of the saga, from running out of money (after spending $60 million) to people breaking their backs, to Spider-women storming out in fear of their brains being bashed out and a parade of colorful incidents that have already made this one of the most legendary shows in Broadway history.
