Who will step in and shut down this insane Broadway production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark?
It’s the theatrical equivalent of the war in Afghanistan: endless casualties, exploding costs, an uncertain timetable, and nobody even knows why it’s still going on. The only difference is that the Afghan war doesn’t have a soundtrack by Bono.
The good news is, once it stops busting up actors, the show could start to turn a profit as early as 2015!
We were just joking when we said Spider-Man should star in Phantom of the Opera instead of his own show, but that idea is looking better and better.
[Update: Producers say the show will resume tomorrow. Just like the Afghan War!]
