SPIDER-MAN: TURN OFF THE DARK BROADWAY REVIEWS

Opening Night: June 14, 2011

Show NY TIMES DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON POST BACKSTAGE EW
Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review

Synopsis: Drawing from over 40 years of Marvel comic books for inspiration, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark spins a new take on the mythic tale of a young man propelled from a modest rowhouse in Queens to the sky-scraping spire of the Chrysler Building, the bustling offices of the Daily Bugle, through the dizzying canyons of Manhattan, to new vistas never before seen. The musical follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down—literally—when he’s bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek—suddenly endowed with astonishing powers—soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains test not only his physical strength but also his strength of character.

Broadway Reviews

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"There is something to be said for those dangerous flying objects — excuse me, I mean actors — that keep whizzing around the Foxwoods Theater, where the mega-expensive musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” has entered the latest chapter of its fraught and anxious existence. After all, if you’re worried that somebody might fall on top of you from a great height, the odds are that you won’t nod off. "

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS REVIEW:

"The problem with expensive leftovers is that they're bound to go bad if you don't put them to good use. "

WASHINGTON POST REVIEW:

"When last we left Spidey, boy oh boy, was he in a pickle. Rampaging super-villains are one thing — they come with the territory. But those reviews! Holy clock-cleaning!"

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"What an improvement. The tangled plot threads that made the new musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" a sticky mess during its record-breaking preview period have been unraveled and woven into an exciting web of wonder."

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"Early in Act 2 of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the genetically altered villain Green Goblin (Patrick Page) sings, ''I'm a $65 million circus tragedy — actually, more like 75.'' Yes, that's a wink-wink nod to the show's notorious crawl to opening night following months of delays, budget overruns, cast injuries, and the exit of original director and co-creator Julie Taymor. "

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"The Bottom Line: The costliest, most ambitious endeavor in Broadway history, “Spider-Man” finally gets off the ground but fails to soar. "

CHICAGO TRIBUNE REVIEW:

""Spidey 2.0," as the once-pretentious, hitherto-arty, forever-costly musical called "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" is now colloquially known, is quite startlingly different from the disastrous original incarnation of the comic-book musical that humbled Bono and The Edge and ate Julie Taymor alive."

AM NEW YORK REVIEW:

"Anyone who sat through an early preview of “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” before the show went on a three-week hiatus and Julie Taymor was forcibly removed as its director is sure to notice how substantially the show has been improved."
