'Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark' box office rises above the critics

Posted on

Grosses for Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark went up 3 percent last week despite pans from news outlets like The New York Times and Variety, according to data posted on Broadway World. The show, which is still in previews until March 15, grossed $1.3 million during the week ending Feb. 13, putting it just behind box office champ Wicked at $1.4 million.

Yesterday, the New York State Department of Labor issued two safety violations for the troubled musical, which has seen four of its performers injured since rehearsals began late last year.
