Please, for the love of God, quit paying to see Spider-Man on Broadway!
This seems to be my soap box lately. Why in the world are people paying to see “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark?” (Still worse title ever). It has had ZERO positive reviews by critics and no one I know who has seen it has anything good to say about it, yet, tickets are selling like gangbusters. Sales were up 3% last week. grossing $1.3 million dollars. To put that into perspective, “Wicked,” a highly successful show grossed $1.4 million. So a brilliant show barely outgrosses a pathetic show. HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?
Producers of the show have been doing focus groups to help fix the problems of the show, but when so much is wrong, I don’t know if you can make it right. In other words, QUIT SPENDING YOUR MONEY TO SEE A CRAPPY SHOW WHEN BROADWAY HAS SOME BRILLIANTLY WONDERFUL FANTASTIC SHOWS!!!
