Spider-Man As Museum Piece
This weekend will have the last few performances of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, one of the most expensive (and most buzzed about) shows this year, for a while -- and will certainly be the last set with any of Julie Taymor's vision for the show. After tomorrow, the show will go on a three-week hiatus until May 12th, when the show will return in an entirely re-worked form. Among the changes to be worked into the show are the movement of Green Goblin's defeat to the second act from the first, the removal of the Greek Chorus of nerds, and a significant decrease in the role of the new villain, Arachne.
