“Spider-Man:Turn Off the Dark” Returns to Broadway


“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” reportedly returned Thursday night to the Broadway stage after another actor injury held up preview performances.

Spider Man is the most expensive Broadway show ever with a $65 million budget.

The musical made headlines in previous weeks when it was plagued by technical mishaps and actor accidents. It was helmed by Broadway vet Julie Taymor and scored by Bono and the Edge.

Most customers were impressed by the spectacle but had expected more for their money, Reuters reported.

Greg Harden told Reuters,”I’m a big U2 fan but I was not blown away.”

Fiona Salmon said, “The plot has to be worked on.”

“They should have had more aerial stunts. It was more like Mary Poppins than Spider-Man.”

While performing in the production Monday, the 32-year-old stunt actor Christopher Tierney fell 30 feet, forcing to cancel the two preview performances. The actor is now walking again after having back surgery according to The Associated Press. Tierney was the fourth actor to be injured in the show.

Reuters also reported that the musical show officially opens Feb. 7 and Orchestra section tickets go for $150.
