The new Broadway show, “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark (which is one of the stupidest titles I have heard in a long time), ran into some major troubles Sunday in its very first preview performance. The $65 million show (the most expensive ever) left actors dangling in the air above the audience and had to be stopped no less than five times, according to published reports. All of the delays pushed its run time to more than three hours. Oy!
The show has been plagued with delays and problems since its inception more than eight years ago. The director of the show is Tony-winner Julie Taymor (The Lion King) and U2′s Bono and The Edge wrote the music. The show officially opens in January.
