Spider-Man + U2 + Broadway = ?

by David Spira
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, a Broadway musical featuring music by U2′s Bono and the Edge had its preview night this week, and it was riddled with mistakes.

The project has a $65 million budget, and will have a $1 million per week operating cost. It’s going to have to have a very long, very successful run on Broadway to break even.

Spider-Man is a great character who I’ve grown sick of. It’s tough to tell a Spidey story that hasn’t been told ten different ways.

I also find Bono utterly contemptible.

That being said, I’ll probably go see it anyway.
