Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark Earns the #1 Spot on Broadway!

Filed under: Performing Arts — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 02:32


Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark earned its highest per-week gross total ever last week. The rock musical, with music and lyrics by Bono and The Edge, raked in $2.94 million and smashed its competition soundly! Wicked came in second with $2.7 million; but this marks the first time Spidey has earned the top-spot on Broadway beating both the famed show that turns The Wizard of Oz upside down and the Disney behemoth The Lion King! Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark is the most expensive production ever produced for the stage, costing a staggering $75 million! Despite a shaky preview season that saw its director get replaced amid a handful of technical mishaps that injured some of the actors in the show, Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark has become a huge hit! I am excited to be seeing the show again this weekend and had the honor of seeing it back in July at the Foxwoods Theater. It is hands-down the BEST show I have ever seen. If you’re in NYC anytime soon, you’d be sadly mistaken to leave a trip to this show off your itinerary! Congrats to the entire cast of this absolutely incredible show for this incredible accomplishment!
