Spider Man Musical Best when Bad.
December 29, 2010
The much embatlled Broadway show, Spider Man: Turn off the Dark, which has endured countless injuries among its many technical setbacks has been thrust back into the news today.
The show still isn't slated to truly open until March 15th, and has been under constant 'dress rehersals' for months now as the cast and crew try to work through what seem like endless glitches.
In every fresh news story about Turn off the Dark, a reviewer points out how distressed the show seems during the acrobatic scenes in which Spidey is flying above the audience and stage.
However, the latest article through the NY Times actually says that when the show goes bad, it makes it better. To clarify, the reviewer says that the show is so bad as it is, that when it fails and the actors find themselves ad libbing on stage to fill dead space due to technical issues, that's when the show is entertaining.
Coming with a $65 million dollar price tag, the show is building up to be one spectacular failure in the history of Broadway. It's already the most expensive ever and it's fast becoming the worst.
So if you find yourself visiting New York and you want to visit a disaster site, skip the Twin Towers site and head on down to the Foxwoods Theater.
