Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark Frozen (That’s a Good Thing)
The Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has hit a huge moment. As of Wednesday night’s preview performance, its 177th, the musical is now an officially “frozen” production. That’s a term that means there’ll be no more changes made. After injuries, delays, cost over runs, plague, locusts, firings, the show is locked in. The show according to Philip William McKinley, who is overseeing production of the musical, is good enough and improved enough for audiences and more changes are not needed.
That also means the musical is ready for theater critics. Some critics have seen the production during it’s previous incarnation and came out blasting it for it’s craptacular everything.
The musical’s cost is now around $70 million and those involved are hoping for $1.7 million weekly to eventually break even.
