Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Has Rocky Public Run-Through

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark (the Broadway musical based on the comic book hero) staged its first public run-through yesterday, and The New York Times counted five full stops during the program. While the article admitted these early shows are “rarely” perfect, they described some dramatic mistakes.

Here’s an excerpt from the article: “[A] harness and cables lifted Spider-Man several yards up and over the audience, then stopped. A production stage manager, C. Randall White, called for a halt to the show over the sound system, apparently in hopes of fixing and re-doing the stunt. Crew members, standing on the stage, spent 45 seconds trying to grab Spider-Man by the foot, as the audience laughed and oohed.”

In September, U2 previewed music from the the upcoming musical on Good Morning America. The video is embedded above, playing after a 30-second advertisement. If you want something a bit darker, try our Spider-Man versus H. P. Lovecraft post.
