The behind-the-scenes ups and downs of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark are well-documented and could make a pretty insane story in its own right. But despite all its delays, injuries and money problems, it’s currently the most popular musical on Broadway, grossing $1,588,514 last week playing to full houses even in its huge 1,900 plus seat Foxwoods Theater in Times Square. Oddly enough, the financial success of the show happens as it simultaneously gets slammed both on College Humor and, more importantly, on the cover of The New Yorker.
Staying in the movie musical category, it seems that the Oscar-winning film Once will finally be coming to Broadway this fall. We reported as much back in 2008 so it’s excited to see it finally come to fruition.
