The Spider Man Broadway Musical reviews arenâ€™t looking to good after a shaky Sunday performance! Spider Man: Turn off the Dark ran into a multitude of technical difficulties during the performance. Get the details here, read the reviews and see videos and photos of the cast after the jump.
When it rains it pours! The Spider Man Broadway Musical from director Julie Taymor and U2â€™s Bono and the Edge have received bad reviews even though the show doesnâ€™t officially open until this January. Apparently actors of the Spidy production were left dangling in the air, stopping the musical midstream more than an estimated five times.
Peter Parker, played by actor Reeve Carney, was said to be trapped in an ariel harness for sometime and was also stopped by the crew midair before flying into a balcony! The New York Times Spider Man Broadway Musical reviews also revealed that the show ran three hours because of all of the trouble on the Spidey set.
Talking about the Broadway production just recently, U2’s Bono called the musical difficult, stating that Spider Man: Turn off the Dark was “harder than we ever thought.” The singer also said “dreaming up the show, the scale of it, the flying sequence, the pop art opera that it is – that was all pure joy. What we didn’t realize was how difficult it is to stage this stuff, both technically and financially.”
Starring Natalie Mendoza and Reeve Carney, Spider Man: Turn off the dark, a reported $65 million production, officially opens in January 2011. Have you seen the musical yet?
