Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark

spider-man-taymor-007I saw this show for the first time in June 2012. Why would I see it again? While the show is kind of a mess musically, it is somewhat of a technical marvel. I sat in the orchestra the first time, but got a seat in the mezzanine this time. I got to see the show from a different angle, seeing much of the gratuitous flying from a different perspective.

Shows like this make me wonder why Broadway producers put so much money behind shows that are basically not very good. It will be interesting to see how long this show lasts and whether it recoups its $65 million. It is probably most popular with the tourist crowd and children. Despite high production costs, my ticket was cheap – $65. It’s hard to find a ticket to any Broadway show for that price!
