Spider-Man Opens on Broadway ... Finally

Well, all ... no sooner has the 2010-2011 Broadway season come to an end with this year's Tony Awards than the 2011-2012 season has begun with the opening of Julie Tymor's latest Broadway outing ... well, sort of.

The mega-expensive mega-musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has finally opened on Broadway and the reviews are in. To say that they aren't good is the understatement of the year. Though it is slightly more coherent than the previous incarnation, it is still not worthy of the price of admission -- valuable only to die-hard theater vultures and slightly less than prescient 10 year olds with money to burn. We shall see how this fares next year, by which time I believe the show will be mostly forgotten.
