Turn Off the Dark," which was beset by its fourth accident. An actor performing an aerial stunt during Monday night's preview plunged 20 to 30 feet and was taken to Bellevue Hospital with minor injuries, fire department officials told WABC-TV.
Forget Terror Tuesday - how does he deal with the terror of the Spider-Man musical? The answer may surprise you. By Brian Collins Dec. In short - while it seemed ridiculous, the idea of combining one of the best known superheroes with a Broadway show was seemingly a good one.
Turn Off The Dark, it probably never will. Well, from today, they have one month exactly to fix it as best as they can and put on a show that will continue to draw an audience beyond the morbidly curious, such as myself.
But then it had its first preview, with reports of actors being injured? Press articles featuring principal creative forces having difficulty explaining what it was about, and a show so complicated that they had to retrofit a theater just to put it on?
To hell with the cost, I had to see it!!! Amazing vs Ultimate Spider-Manand other mediums, his origin has been told and retold several times, and I liked the potential idea of getting the details mixed up.
But this particular version involves Arachne, a mythological spider-WOMAN who was made that way by Athena, who was jealous of her loom powers.
After discovering that he now has the powers of a spider, he first uses those skills for personal gain, but ultimately takes responsibility after his Uncle Ben is killed and uses them to fight supervillains such as the Green Goblin.
You have to already know that story in order to make any sense out of what his happening during this first part of Act 1. He is never mentioned again. Aunt May appears once more, and neither appear to have much influence on anything Peter does in the play. His name is Harry, and has been part of every other iteration of the story.
He has a wife though, for some reason. You thought Spider-Man 3 was overstuffed? There is no clear indication of the passage of time, nor do the minor story points seem to connect - at one point MJ more or less dumps Peter, but the next time we see them together they are enjoying a date.
Here there are precisely three standouts: Cut a hole in the mask or something! However, I should note that this is not the fault of the actors. All of them were quite good and sounded even better.
On a visual level, the show is incredible. The aerial battles were also quite impressive. The costumes were hit and miss. Everyone had giant heads, even Kraven who is human looking. And come on, silver jumpsuited Osborn employees?
The seats were comfortable.
This could also help get the show from a ridiculous 2: The second act is currently a total misfire, with a plot that races along without any sense of the stakes involved or what anyone is even trying to accomplish the only way to tell how far along you are in the plot of Act II is to count how many songs are left.
Probably not much they can do about the songs, but with a more coherent story supporting them, they might fit better in the show as a whole. And in the process give Batman a little hope that he might take the stage someday too.Photos from the new Spider-Man show on Broadway.
