'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' gets new high-flying finale

Posted on

Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark has a new finale of aerial acrobatics performed by Spider-Man/Peter Parker, a rep for the show confirms to EW. The new stunts have replaced the show’s old ending, in which a curtain dropped abruptly from the ceiling after a bit of dialogue between Peter Parker and Mary Jane. Earlier this month, producer Michael Cohl told EW that director Julie Taymor, writer Eric Berger, and composers Bono and the Edge were convening to reassess the musical in the weeks before its official opening night, now scheduled for March 15 after three lengthy postponements. (The show was originally scheduled to debut on Dec. 21 of last year.)

Despite accident-plagued preview performances and mixed early reviews, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark continues to sell strongly at the Broadway box office, grossing $1.25 million during the week ending Jan. 16.
