Spider-Man Musical Makes Broadway History
For a while it seemed like “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” was never going to make it to the stage. Numerous technical issues, problems with the music and the script, plus cast injuries delayed production for months. It was all worth the hassles though, because the musical has now made Broadway history.
The musical, which features songs by Bono and The Edge, earned the highest single week box office gross in Broadway history a few weeks ago. The show closed out 2011 with a record-breaking week of nine performances taking in 2.9 million dollars. By the way, the show is the most expensive Broadway production of all time. Investors shelled out about 75 million dollars for the show. Bono says despite all the problems, “there was magic on the stage.”
